Editorial Reviews:
"Wild...Romantic...Unconventional...A triumph of hope."


The voice of a baseball announcer tells the Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella: "If you build it, he will come." "He" is Shoeless Joe Jackson, Ray's hero. "It" is a baseball stadium which Ray carves out of his cornfield. Like the movie FIELD OF DREAMS that was made from this novel, SHOELESS JOE is about baseball. But it's also about love and the power of dreams to make people come alive....

"His novel celebrates imagination and effort, wittily posits serious theses on the role of baseball and other art forms, and provokes various kinds of laughter."

George Plimpton

"Kinsella does wonders in this book: The visual fantasies are so rich that whether you believe them or not, you can't help imagining them....[Kinsella] has a rare talent for conveying pure joy."

Jim Murray
