A great day for a ballgame : a conscious love story by Fielding Dawson( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In A Great Day for a Ballgame, narrator Fielding is a writer who sells a story to a fashion magazine and is invited to meet the literary editor Amelia West in her midtown New York office. It turns out she's a fan and, surprise, she instantly likes him in person. For his part, he too is hooked, attracted by her beauty but also by the disarming fact that she really is in tune with him. She can appreciate his wit, observations, and theories. As they start dating, she even understands his concept of a storyline dialogue: two fictional characters, or real-life people, having a conversation that is moving toward the same end, so that their lines are interchangeable. At one point, when Amelia makes a comment, Fielding comically says, That's my line. Except for the cigarettes, this could be a story of the present or future, but its also good to see it as a part of New York's past. I had a remarkable feeling that I was in one of my own stories, the Fielding character says
The Mandalay dream by Fielding Dawson( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Days -- moments -- in the life of a furniture-selling son and lover, combed for indications that one does get a little wiser as well as just a little older. The nub could be "deep contact" looks shared with a friend's girl or a customer's child; could be a glimpse of the Azuma sales force's contempt for a yuk-yukking Texan; could be bittersweet flashes of boyfriends, girlfriends, family (Grandpa's veering pomp, Aunty Loula's tragedy), or a lost wife (nevermore "the fun we had shopping retail"). Epiphanettes are everywhere; and from the language ("so sensitive," "deeply wounded," and "wow" prefixing most insights) and loose forms we gather that these were set down hot and undoctored."--Kirkus
