1937. The gears of world war have begun to grind, but Inky Lautman, star point guard for the South Philadelphia Hebrew Association, America's greatest basketball team, is dealing with his own problems. His coach has unwittingly incurred a massive gambling debt to the Bund, a group of American Nazis. His main basketball rival is self-righteously leading public protests against homegrown American fascism. It's more than Inky can deliver. He just wants to play ball and occasionally beat people up for money. When the Bund comes calling for what it's owed, Inky has to make a stand for his ragtag bunch of teammates and the coach that got them into this mess. With the Bund closing in, Inky's game isn't just basketball anymore. It becomes a battle that pits Jewish pride against Nazi fascism. The tides of history are flowing against a guy like Inky. Can he make his free throws and still make it through the season alive? Get ready. This...is Jewball.

    " I enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected to. It's a fast, fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by David | 12/18/2013

    " A great novel that combines history, sociology, and sports. It tells the tale of a young Jewish basketball star in the 1930's, a time when Jews actually dominated the sport of basketball, who gets caught up in love, the Nazi rise to power, and his own ego. "
