Marshall J. Cook

When Norah Stoddard tries out for the high school men’s varsity baseball team in 1986, she rocks little Glorious, Wisconsin out of the malaise spawned by the farm crisis. When her alcoholic mother and the latest of Mom’s abusive “boyfriends” drive Norah from her home, Bee Cooney and Reb Early, proprietors of Degan’s Dinky Diner, take Norah in. “The voice of Glorious,” Kenny Kellogg, a cynical radio vagabond, has fallen from the heights, his slide into Glorious slicked by liquor and loneliness. A young woman in town looking for her biological dad, the disgraced ex-editor of the town weekly, and Norah, may just turn his life around along with their own.
