P. Kinsella plays with both myth and fantasy in his lyrical novel,
which was adapted into the enormously popular movie, Field of Dreams.
It begins with the magic of a godlike voice in a cornfield, and ends
with the magic of a son playing catch with the ghost of his father. In
Kinsella's hands, it's all about as simple, and complex, as the object
of baseball itself: coming home. Like Ring Lardner and Bernard Malamud
before him, Kinsella spins baseball as backdrop and metaphor, and, like
his predecessors, uses the game to tell us a little something more
about who we are and what we need.
