This chapter demonstrates how Auster presents baseball and storytelling as ways of promoting community and friendship within an urban setting, and how they both provide ways for characters to reconnect to their metropolitan environment. It notes that storytelling works as a way for characters to form strong connections with supportive networks of friends, their immediate neighbourhood, and wider society. This chapter also observes that Auster's characters are better able to understand their place in the world, and can thus locate themselves more securely than his characters in his earlier fictions.
