Hero of the Play: 10th Anniversary Edition

by ,

Ten years ago, Richard Harrison thrilled poetry and hockey lovers with a collection of poetry devoted to the great Canadian game. This beloved collection has been re-issued with a new selection of poems, "The Hero in Overtime," an essay by the author on ten years of living with hockey poetry, and a foreword by Roy MacGregor. "I was mesmerized by Harrison's writing - his observation that Mark Messier's stare 'weighs 200 pounds'; his descriptions of Don Cherry; his astonishing, yet accurate, comparison of hockey to Sumo wrestling - and I am delighted that, 10 years on, he is back with a new issue of "Hero of the Play" with all kinds of new writing to fascinate and intrigue and, most importantly, inspire those of us who profoundly believe it is impossible to know this country without knowing its game." - Excerpt from Foreword Hide synopsis
