A compilation of short stories surrounding the battlefield of tennis. These stories could have been taken from any; locker room, dance competition, police academies even bingo or poker night. Any place people get together, and compete. It’s about people in pressure situations, tales with in-depth observations through relationships with friend and foe. Some friendships lasted years, some just a season, or a single tournament. Grudges lasted decades. All have spectacular endings, some taking as much as ten years to wreak vengeance. When I say great endings, I don’t mean all happy-endings but exciting, with twists like only true life can dish out. These observations will tickle the avid tennis player as well as anyone who deal with people in competitive situations. Battling the town, the league rival or your best friend…
All stories are true. Tennis etiquette and life morels to be learned and enjoyed.
As you ponder the trials and tribulations of the characters, you get deeper insight into the author.
Michael, are you sure this really happened? I did not approve any of it. “Laurie” (Wife and conscience)
This is the most implausible, coincident ridden exhibit of maternalinstincts and corny sentimentalism, smacking just short of Bolshevism. ---- I Loved it! “Anonymous”
A molotov cocktail of thoughts and utterances. It’s like Vuja De` all over again. --- Can’t wait to read more. -- Super Dave (Hero extraordinaire)
Mike is a top-notch Athlete, Musician, Carpenter, Artist, Horse Wrangler,
Kick boxer, and now a Writer... An authentic ‘Renaissance Man’ --- ------ “Michael Chwalek” (Rocket Scientist)
He was a gifted child, kind and honest, always seeing things differently than
the other kids. Who knew he would turn out like this? Why couldn’t you be
more like your sister? .................................. (Mom)
You don’t have to be a tennis buff to be drawn into Mike’s world. These are
stories about people, who they are and what they do. They kept me turning
the pages.
Charles Durang, Editorial Director, Covered Bridge Press and Douglas Charles Press
A great writer can paint a picture in your mind and you have mastered this art.
Erik ‘the Barbarian’ Anderson (Head tennis Pro - New England)
