Audible Editor Reviews

This fantastical collection of short stories from W. P. Kinsella contains tales of wolves, conspiracy theorists, and legends raised from the dead - but most of all, stories about baseball, that greatest of all American sports.

Actor Kris Koscheski’s cocky performance of The Dixon Cornbelt League perfectly captures the peculiar nostalgia of Kinsella’s stories - nostalgia for a time which never actually existed, when the magic of a good old-fashioned baseball game was really, well, magical. Koscheski deftly inhabits each character we encounter, drawling and spitting, cursing and cajoling, throwing himself fully into a performance which makes this audiobook a genuine joy to hear.

Publisher's Summary

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.
