Shoeless Joe

By Kinsella, W P




More than the inspiration for the beloved film Field of Dreams, Shoeless Joe is a mythical novel about “dreams, magic, life, and what is quintessentially American” (Philadelphia Inquirer).

 

“If you build it, he will come.” These mysterious words, spoken by an Iowa baseball announcer, inspire Ray Kinsella to carve a baseball diamond in his cornfield in honor of his hero, the baseball legend Shoeless Joe Jackson. What follows is both a rich, nostalgic look at one of our most cherished national pastimes and a remarkable story about fathers and sons, love and family, and the inimitable joy of finding your way home.

Shoeless Joe

Kinsella, W. P.

Boston: Houghton Mifflin. NF/NF. 1982. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 1st edition/1st printing. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author on the half-title page: 'For Ed Morris With best wishes Bill Kinsella May 24/82 Chicago'. A blind-stamped (no color) embossment directly below that inscription reads 'Library of Edward L. Morris E.L.M.', so the book's previous owner was the person the author's inscription was written to. Straight, clean, very tight book with only that blind-stamp ed embossment to keep it from being 'as new'. The price intact, crisp and clean dustjacket has just a touch of the lower spine end bluing to the green (much less than normal), and a couple of very tiny edge nicks at the flap fold ends, but is otherwise in excellent condition. A lovely copy of this classic which was made into the movie 'Field Of Dreams' and which won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature. A baseball-based fantasy about the power of dreams to move people. ; Signed by Author .

Boston. 1982. Houghton Mifflin. 1st Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN:039532047x. 265 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Wendell Minor. FROM THE PUBLISHER - SHOELESS JOE, winner of the Houghton Muffin Literary Fellowship Award, is a warm-hearted, hilarious, outrageous novel about the power of dreams to move people, to make them come alive again. The narrator and protagonist, Ray Kinsella, an Iowa insurance agent turned farmer, is a charming combination of dreamer, clown, and hero. His love of baseball is symbolic of people’s love for any ritual that enchants them, gives their lives a sense of wonder and delight. One summer evening, while sitting on his porch, Ray hears the disembodied voice of a baseball announcer saying, ‘If you build it, he will come.’ ‘He,’ Ray somehow knows, is Shoeless Joe Jackson, his hero, who was thrown out of professional baseball as a result of the 1919 ‘Black Sox’ scandal. ‘It’ is a baseball stadium, to be built in Ray’s cornfield. He builds the stadium and anxiously awaits Shoeless Joe’s appearance. But Ray’s adventures have just begun. Next, the voice tells him to ‘ease his pain,’ and he knows the pain is that of J. D. Salinger, the famous reclusive author. Ray discovers that Salinger is a baseball fan and realizes that his mission is to kidnap Salinger and take him to a baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston. Ray heads east and, after a series of outlandish encounters, he returns to his cornfield stadium with a motley crew of fellow-dreamers. There, under the glow of the lights, each of them works out his redemption through the magic of love and baseball. inventory #5056 ISBN: 039532047x.
