About The Book
In this new collection of exquisitely crafted essays, veteran sports writer Jack Falla writes about hockey as he has seen and experienced it over the past fifty years. Reflections on the game, its personalities and arenas, and twenty-five years of commitment to creating his backyard rink are woven into family memories and other fond remembrances.
A heartwarming and amusing collection, Open Ice is sure to touch every hockey fan and all those who have grown up loving the game.
Praise for Jack Falla’s Previous Collection of Essays, Home Ice
“literary hot chocolate that will warm your heart.”
?The New York Times
“While Home Ice may be a book about hockey and the charm of backyard rinks, it is more than that, too. It is a book about relationships?between fathers and sons, husbands and wives?and how the game can bridge the gaps that commonly occur between generations in a family… It’s a treasure and one that readers will be happy they searched out. Possibly the best hockey book since Ken Dryden’s The Game.”
?The Globe & Mail
“A gentle and powerful book.”
?Dave Bidini, Author of Tropic of Hockey and The Best Game You Can Name
