Essential W. P. Kinsella

By W P Kinsella
This career retrospective celebrates the 80th birthday of baseball's greatest scribe, W. P. Kinsella ("Shoeless Joe"), as well as the 25th anniversary of "Field of Dreams," the film that he inspired.
In addition to his classic baseball tales, W. P. Kinsella is also a critically-acclaimed short fiction writer. His satiric wit has been celebrated with numerous honors, including the Order of British Columbia.
Here are his notorious First Nation narratives of indigenous Canadians, and a literary homage to J. D. Salinger. Alongside the "real" story of the 1951 Giants and the afterlife of Roberto Clemente, are the legends of a pirated radio station and a hockey game rigged by tribal magic.
Eclectic, dark, and comedic by turns, "The Essential W. P. Kinsella" is a living tribute to an extraordinary raconteur.

Praise for W. P. Kinsella "Kinsella defines a world in which magic and reality combine to make us laugh and think about the perceptions we take for granted." --"New York Times" "Kinsella is a brilliant writer." --"Edmonton Sun" ." important literary figure." --"Detroit News" "Anyone who has read Kinsella (has) been touched on the shoulder by his quirky sense of reality." --"Boston Herald"
