Author Mack Lines Reads Part One of The Legend of Curb Ball

While the country prepares to celebrate its bicentennial, a feral second grader turns his town upside down with an infectious new game. The Legend of Curb Ball is the first story in a larger novel called Not Poor, But Wild. I hope you enjoy the story, and hopefully soon, when the Covid-19 worries are behind us our kids will have a chance to play Curb Ball for themselves. Enjoy!

The Legend of Curb Ball Part One

While we’re all social distancing, and I’m trying to figure out what to do with the books I’ve been writing, I decided to start reading and posting excerpts of some of my stories. So, let’s get started with The Legend of Curb Ball. It’s 1976. While the country prepares to celebrate its bicentennial, a feral second grader turns his town upside down with an infectious new game.

The Legend of Curb Ball is the first story in a larger novel called Not Poor, But Wild. I hope you enjoy the story, and hopefully soon, when the Covid-19 worries are behind us our kids will have a chance to play Curb Ball for themselves. Enjoy!

When I’m not riding a desk, Mack Lines is busy wrenching on Books and Motorcycles. Not Poor, But Wild was my first book, written over the winter of 2018-19. I am currently editing my second book, currently called the Heroin(e), but it appears that the name was already taken, so it will most likely be renamed, The Flaw. The Fix. When I’m finished with the second book, I’ll begin looking for a Literary Agent and a Publisher for both books. If that’s you, please drop me a note.
