The Legend of Bagger Vance

(1995)
A novel by

 
 
In the Depression year of 1931, on the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windswept shore, two legends of the game - Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen - meet for an epic thirty-six hole showdown. They are joined by another player, a troubled war hero called Rannulph Junah. However, the key to the outcome lies not with these two golfing titans, but with Junah's caddie and mentor, the mysterious, sage and charismatic Bagger Vance. For Vance is the custodian of the secret of the Authentic Swing and he alone can show his protégé the true path back to glory... Sharing something of the spirit of Bernard Malamud's The Natural and the magic of Field of Dreams, Steven Pressfield's first novel is a true original. Page-turning, spellbinding and affecting, it is a tale for golfers and non-golfers alike - a story in which the search for the Authentic Swing becomes a metaphor for the search for the Authentic Self - a novel not so much about golf as the game of life itself. 'Good stuff...a philosophical fantasy imagined on a golf course, heavy with fog, storm, fireworks and the howling winds of supernatural forces' New York Times Book Review 'Golf and mysticism...a dazzler and a thought-provoker' Los Angeles Times 'Memorable...a page-turner...golf played a foot or so from Alice's looking glass, with mystical realms poised to engulf the reader at every turn' Sports Illustrated
