The author of SHOELESS JOE is impressive with some of his short story work, collected in this volume.
Much of Kinsella’s work reminds me of Joe Lansdale with his hardened Midwest denizens, those clinging to a past that was more dependable and predictable than present day, when American values were still strong.
