ALIBI IKE

A very, very funny tale about a baseball player who couldn't help but make excuses--even when he didn't have to.

ALIBI IKE, by Ring Lardner

1)Is Ike solely to blame for his romantic woes, or do the narrator and Carey bear some responsibility?

2) Do you think Ike can give his girl a happy home? Or will his need to make excuses and depart from the truth going to be a problem?
