A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

With a voice as Canadian as winter, David Adams Richards reflects on the place of hockey in the Canadian soul.

The lyrical narrative of Hockey Dreams flows from Richards' boyhood games on the Miramichi to heated debates with university professors who dare to back the wrong team.  It examines the globalization of hockey, and how Canadians react to the threat of foreigners beating us at "our" game.

Part memoir, part essay on national identity, part hockey history, Hockey Dreams is a meditation by one of Canada's finest writers on the essence of the game that helps define our nation.

From the Back Cover:

“Richards has used a novelist’s gift for character, dialogue and imagery to produce a touching portrait of hockey-crazed kids.” – Maclean’s

“A lyrical and unapologetically personal narrative about the place of the game in the Canadian psyche…[Richards] has raised the standard of hockey literature.” – Vancouver Sun
