Ball Cap Secrets Revealed

Ball Cap Nation, by James Lilliefors. Clerisy Press. 218 pages. $15.95

Naples knows Jim Lilliefors for his excellent magazine and newspaper work, and also for his fine writing in Philharmonic Center for the Arts publications. His books include a novel, Bananaville, and two earlier forays into popular culture: Highway 50 and America’s Boardwalks.  Ball Cap

Ball Cap Nation addresses the material and cultural history of the baseball cap in a breezy, sometimes self-deprecating tone. Lilliefors seems to insist that his “Journey through the World of America’s National Hat” is not to be taken very seriously. However, this strategy allows him to sneak in plenty of solid information about this omnipresent head-topper.
