I think W.P Kinsella is a much better short story writer than novelist, and keep in mind that Shoeless Joe is one of my favorite books This collection I think shows a Kinsella when he was a fledgling writer, just discovering his ability with words and to mix reality with fantasy in a way that the everyday can seem fantastic.Among the tales The short that led to the novel Shoeless Joe, another set where things go a little differently and Janis Joplin doesn t overdose and die, a whorehouse in W I think W.P Kinsella is a much better short story writer than novelist, and keep in mind that Shoeless Joe is one of my favorite books This collection I think shows a Kinsella when he was a fledgling writer, just discovering his ability with words and to mix reality with fantasy in a way that the everyday can seem fantastic.Among the tales The short that led to the novel Shoeless Joe, another set where things go a little differently and Janis Joplin doesn t overdose and die, a whorehouse in WW II Canada, a young man seeking the love of his life, and there is .Sometimes there isthan a tinge of melancholy to these tales Often what resounds is how important love is to us.Find a collection of Kinsella s shorts and I doubt that you will be disappointed I thought that I was getting the full novel of Shoeless Joe and I got a book of short stories instead They were all a bit magical, dreamy and nostalgic Joe and First Names and Empty Pockets a Janis Joplin story were by far my favorites, but I need to get the full Joe book from the library before it is time for football It is so odd, I really do not like baseball but I am entranced by baseball movies and I love to watch college football, Virginia Tech anyway, and will sit through the Redskin I thought that I was getting the full novel of Shoeless Joe and I got a book of short stories instead They were all a bit magical, dreamy and nostalgic Joe and First Names and Empty Pockets a Janis Joplin story were by far my favorites, but I need to get the full Joe book from the library before it is time for football It is so odd, I really do not like baseball but I am entranced by baseball movies and I love to watch college football, Virginia Tech anyway, and will sit through the Redskins with my husband but will not read about the game Gem First Names and Empty Pockets But then, I ll read anything about Janis Joplin, so I m biased It s a good story anyway, to be read while listening to Pre Road Downs by Crosby, Stills, and Nash Some of the others are unpleasant. This is a series of early short stories It is not the book made into Field of Dreams but does have the original short story he later xpanded I liked the short story on Janis Joplin the best. A fun collection of short stories. Didn t find this to be on par with other Kinsella short story collections I ve read that I enjoyed So so. 2.8 stars Two short stories lingered in my imagination, others were highly forgettable Glad I didn t buy this collection. A treasure If you are a baseball fan, as well as nostalgic, and a lover of literature, this book is for you.Delightful. I love W.P Kinsella s novels, so I was excited about reading this collection of short stories Unfortunately, I did not enjoy them as much as his novels Perhaps it is because the stories seem disjointed, or because these are some of Kinsella s very early writings he was just beginning to develop a style Or maybe it is because these stories are so short do not allow for the development of interesting characters,which is one of the aspects I love about his novels I love W.P Kinsella s novels, so I was excited about reading this collection of short stories Unfortunately, I did not enjoy them as much as his novels Perhaps it is because the stories seem disjointed, or because these are some of Kinsella s very early writings he was just beginning to develop a style Or maybe it is because these stories are so short do not allow for the development of interesting characters,which is one of the aspects I love about his novels I haven t read this one in years I the title short story is the best story by far Some of the others are OK and a couple are just weird Still rates a 5 though for the one story.
