Foxsports.com pundit Rosen (Barney Polan's Game ) hits the hardwood in this entertaining sports novel. Pearl Harbor makes Jason Lewis, a promising senior guard for New York's Metro University, into an army enlistee. When he comes back from the Pacific missing several fingers, Jason is reduced to selling insurance for his father-in-law. Although he considers referees a necessary evil (“rogue cops with whistles”), he jumps at a chance to officiate high school games. Jason discovers that he enjoys just being around the game, but his elevation to the professional ranks coincides with a trifecta of personal and professional crises. Rosen's deep knowledge of basketball history and his nimble prose make this bittersweet sports novel a light swish. (May)
