W. P. Kinsella
The book that inspired the movie Field of Dreams.
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….
'The movie only captured half the magic of the book. This is a masterpiece.' Andrew Kaufman 'Not so much about baseball as it is about dreams, magic, life and what is quintessentially American.' The Philadelphia Enquirer.
