The man who wrote Shoeless Joe, a baseball novel that was turned into film with Field of Dreams, author W.P Kinsella is back after 27 years with another novel, and baseball fans everywhere should be delighted.
A gifted writer whose stories and books have always been about magical, mystical moments - and sometimes hilarious notions - Kinsella was hit by a car in 1997 and stopped writing for more than five years.
Kinsella's new novel, Butterfly Winter, is a story about twins - one a pitcher, the other a catcher - who became a baseball battery while still in the womb.
