Dave Bidini's playful, irreverent new books takes a headlong run at the hockey dressing room and knocks the door down. In one story, a chronic minor-leaguer discovers the wonders and pitfalls of the game in Europe, both on and off the ice. A star on a losing streak turns to a magical salve to turn his game around. Full of sex, drugs and high sticking, each of the Five Hole Stories runs its proverbial tongue down hockey's seamy, steamy underbelly, and finds the language to tell us what it tastes like.

Book Description Brindle and Glass Publishing, Ltd, Canada, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Each of the six stories in Dave Bidini s playful, irreverent new book takes a headlong run at the hockey dressing room, and each knocks the door down. What s happening when the door opens next is anyone s guess. In one story, a chronic minor-leaguer discovers the wonders-- and the pitfalls-- of the game in Europe, both on and off the ice. In another, an NHLer is tight with his teammate, the league s leading goalscorer, but dreams of getting MUCH tighter. A star on a losing streak turns to a magical salve to turn his game around. A conversation between two friends yields surprising facts about Joan, everyone s favourite female goalie. A hundred bucks is all that stands between a hockey groupie and eternal happiness in 1950s Detroit. And finally, the eponymous Five Hole itself speaks-- though it never reveals all of its secrets. Full of sex, drugs and high-sticking, each of The Five Hole Stories runs its proverbial tongue down hockey s seamy, steamy underbelly and then finds language to tell us what it tastes like. A scintillating look at hockey with its clothes off, in six ambitious poses. Seller Inventory # AAG9781897142189
