Wherever I Wind Up
My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball
An English Lit major at the University of Tennessee, R.A. Dickey is as articulate and thoughtful as any professional athlete in any sport-and he proves it in Wherever I Wind Up. He provides fresh and honest insight into baseball and a career unlike any other. Fourteen years ago, Dickey was a heralded No. 1 draft choice of the Texas Rangers, only to have a signing bonus, and his lifelong dream, ripped away by an X- ray.
Sustained by his profound Christian faith, the love of his wife and children, and a relentless quest for self-awareness and authenticity, the immensely likable Dickey details his transformation from a reckless, risk-taking 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.
