Holly Wendt is a weekly contributor to Baseball Prospectus’s brand new Short Relief column. Short Relief is “a series of shortform articles by various writers, concerned primarily with the aesthetic, the metaphorical, and the ridiculous aspects of baseball as an unproductive labor that induces such devotion and contentment.” (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/column/short_relief/)
In Holly’s first installment (March 6), she used Yoko Ogawa’s novel The Housekeeper and the Professor (to which she was introduced to by Terri Rosenberg’s World Lit III course). The week of March 13, she wrote a pastiche of “The Charge of the Light Brigade.”
