This book has been on my radar since I read and loved Bill Gaston's The Good Body. Someone suggested to me that I would probably like King Leary. And then when it won Canada Reads I mentally made a note that I still hadn't got around to it. It's too bad, because it's f***ing brilliant. This is purely selfish, but I met Paul Quarrington briefly at last year's Eden Mills festival. I think I said, Nice to meet you. I wish I could have said how much I loved his writing. It's probably for the best, though. Like Jim Cuddy, I probably would have over-gushed, and there would be no invitation to the parties after that. :-) Anyway, read this book. I guess it's best if you know hockey, but it's so, so much more than a book about hockey.
