No one can write about baseball with the same brilliant combination of mysticism and realism as W. P. Kinsella. Lovers of the game and lovers of fine writing will thrill to the range of the eleven stories that make up this new collection.

From the magical conspiracy of the title story, to the celestial prediction in The Last Pennant Before Armageddon , to the desolation of The Baseball Spur , Kinsella explores the world of baseball and makes it, miraculously, a microcosm of the human condition.
