This book was glorious. Compared to Gaston's fiction I far preferred this acerbic, often TMI, account of oldtimers' hockey and his own life as a Canadian hockey player. I was trying to quell my (often appalled) laughter to little avail on the bus reading this. It's ridiculous and profane and more disgusting than I usually read, but it's funny as all hell and a quite faithful account of hockey, and hockey past youth. I loved this book.
