May 2, 1917 and two eccentric masters of major-league baseball pitching, Jim "Hippo" Vaughn of the Chicago Cubs and Fred Toney of the Cincinnati Reds, are 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 an enchantment beyond its history.
The novel deftly weaves a bewitching tale that reflects America's madness about baseball, its passion, romance and heartbreak. The great Jim Thorpe, Einstein, 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.

And "Cubs won't win the pennant till the Arctic melts." To follow the Cubs is like what happens to us in life; our myths vanish and we finally see clearly.
