1917: The Perfect Game
An eBook and paperback available on Amazon.
Enlightenment through baseball:
May 2, 1917. This novel breaks the historical borders of the sensational baseball game of May 2, 1917 to create a rambunctious story of the nature of our mind.
On that date in history, two masters of major-league baseball pitching, Jim "Hippo" Vaughn of the Chicago Cubs and Fred Toney of the Cincinnati Reds were brought together for one of baseball’s most momentous games. That distinct game remains as the solitary mountain top of achievement among all of baseball's most hallowed records.
This spirited, humorous and freewheeling novel creates a mythic enchantment beyond that factual history to elucidate the principles of the Society of Sacred Flowers. It is a bewitching tale that reflects America's madness about baseball, its passion, romance and heartbreak infused with political theatrics and personal awakening.
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 most unique baseball game in history.
This 100-year anniversary edition reawakens the dramatic year of 1917 as the Chicago Cubs host the Cincinnati Reds.
In the cacophony of the times, the two teams and the entire world are caught up playing - The Perfect Game.
