From the Publisher:

An irresistible collection of magical baseball stories from the acclaimed author of Shoeless Joe--the basis of the award-winning film Field of Dreams.

From the Inside Flap:

"[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. "His short stories about baseball are wistful things of beauty which serve to remind us how the game should feel—the innate glory of a diamond etched in the minds of Americans."—Calgary Sun. "[Kinsella] uses baseball . . . as a familiar starting place for exploring, with pinpoint control, the human psyche."—Booklist. "Stories that read like lightning and tantalize the reader with fascinating scenarios."—Publishers Weekly.

Shortstops who run with the wolves, painted eggs that reveal deeply disturbing meanings, long-dead Hall of Famers who miraculously return to the game, an Iowa minor-league town with a secret conspiracy: these are the elements from which W. P. Kinsella weaves nine fabulous stories about the magical world of baseball.

From the dugouts, clubhouses, bedrooms, and barrooms to the interior worlds of hope and despair, these eerie stories present the absurdities of human relationships and reveal the writer's special genius for touching the heart.

W. P. Kinsella is the author of more than two hundred short stories and fifteen books, including The Iowa Baseball Confederacy and Shoeless Joe, which became the basis for the film Field of Dreams. A graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, Kinsella has been honored with the prestigious Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship and has taught writing at the University of Victoria.
