1917: The Perfect Game
by JC MacQueen
This novel is not a historical retelling of the sensational baseball game of May 2, 1917. Rather the game becomes a rambunctious story of the nature of our mind. Weaving myth and insight, the great Jim Thorpe, Einstein, Longchenpa, World War 1, Sigmund Freud, the madhouse city of Chicago, and President Wilson are swirling in a dust devil around the essence of The Perfect Game.
