All of Boston has been waiting for the arrival of Fred Lynn and Jim Rice to the 1975 Red Sox. The papers call them the Gold Dust Twins, the best pair of rookies ever to come to one team together. It is a Sox fan's dream.
Richard Riley Moncrief is that fan. And he intends to live that dream, in the stands and on the field. All he needs is his partner. . .
Napoleon Charlie Ellis arrives from the island of Dominica--and a world Richard will never know. Napoleon plays cricket, never says ain't, and is more at home in Symphony Hall than Fenway Park.

Simple as black and white.

And maybe black and white is not that simple.
