Longtime New York Daily News sports columnist and ESPN commentator Mike Lupica began writing novels in the mid-1980s and hasn’t stopped since, dropping works of fiction — from mysteries to stories for younger audiences — every few years. Just in time for the new NBA season, Lupica’s latest novel, Fast Break, centers on a gifted basketball player who is sent across town to live with affluent foster parents following his mother’s death. Per Kirkus Review’s recent take on Fast Break: “Nothing groundbreaking here, but Lupica delivers solid action and character growth.” Lupica reads from and discusses Fast Break at Joseph-Beth.
