An English Lit major at the University of Tennessee, Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey is as articulate and thoughtful as any professional athlete in any sport - and proves it in Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball, as he provides fresh and honest insight into baseball and a career unlike any other.

Dickey was a heralded No. 1 draft choice of the Texas Rangers, only to have everything ripped away by the discovery that he did not have an ulna collateral ligament in his right elbow. In 2007, he gave up a record six home runs in three innings to the Detroit Tigers - and was effectively consigned to the baseball scrap heap.

Sustained by his profound Christian faith, the love of his wife and children, and a relentless quest for self-awareness and authenticity, in Dickey details his transformation from a reckless loner to a grounded, life-affirming big leaguer. He emerged as one of the premier pitchers in the National League in 2010 - and the knuckleballing embodiment of the wonders that perseverance and human wisdom can produce.

Dickey views his story as one of redemption. You will come to see it as something even more - a uniquely American story of beating back demons, listening to your heart, and overcoming extraordinary odds.
