Kevin King's debut novel, All the Stars Came Out That Night, is a vivid portrait of Depression-era America written in a voice at once humorous and poetic. Set at Boston's Fenway Park on October 20, 1943, All the Stars Came Out That Night imagines a late-night baseball game bankrolled by Henry Ford, pitting Dizzy Dean's all-white all-stars against Satchel Paige's black all-stars. Not a contest waged for money or trophies, the outcome of this game carries with it both the weight of a historic injustice-'the barring of blacks from baseball-'and the promise of vindication and redemption.

Steeped in baseball lore and featuring an array of iconic American figures-'from Babe Ruth to Clarence Darrow-'All the Stars Came Out That Nightfar transcends the sport of baseball, creating a tale that is mythic, captivating, and above all, quintessentially American.
