I read Shoeless Joe by W. P. Kinsella on January 22, 2019
I got this book after hearing Episode #664 of the This American Life podcast. In the podcast one of the people meets Kinsella, the author and they share a reverence for Richard Brautigan and his Brautigan library and weird fiction. Anyways, this is a weird book, sort of magical realism for the corn fields of Iowa. It is a great read and its interesting to watch the movie because it very closely adapts the book (something which is not as common to see anymore).
