"IF YOU BUILD IT, HE WILL COME"

KINSELLA, W(illiam). P(atrick). Shoeless Joe. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1982. Octavo, original half white cloth, original dust jacket. $450.

First edition of Kinsella's loving, lyrical novel of baseball—"the one constant through all the years"—basis for the celebrated film Field of Dreams.

"Kinsella is drunk on complementary elixirs, literature and baseball, and the cocktail he mixes of the two is a lyrical, seductive and altogether winning concoction" (New York Times). The winner of the 1982 Books in Canada First Novel Award, Shoeless Joe was adapted for the popular 1989 film Field of Dreams, starring Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones and, in his last theatrically released role, Burt Lancaster. McCue, 60.

A fine copy.
