Acclaim for HOCKEY SUR GLACE
“HOCKEY SUR GLACE brims with affection for hockey—more accurately, for skating and winter. It’s full of fond memories of searching for good ice as you tramp through the woods with your friends after school, of taking a breakaway and tucking the puck into a homemade goal on a frozen lake while young women watch. [The stories] all take weight from a powerful retrospect, from a lost time that was both troubled and blessed.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“Incandescent short stories.” —Yankee Magazine
“Unlike other sports, hockey has had no literary tradition. No Rabbit Run. No Bang the Drum Slowly. Unlike other sports, hockey has never been viewed as ground fertile enough to plant serious fiction. Nor has it ever really had a chronicler to take it out of the rink and elevate it to where art lives. Enter Peter LaSalle.” —Providence Sunday Journal
“HOCKEY SUR GLACE is a remarkably heartfelt paean to the ice game. . . . LaSalle is haunted by the need to recreate the experience of ice, and, as anyone who has ever glided atop an actual frozen body of water in zero-degree weather can tell you, it is one that really does haunt you for the rest of your life.” —The Village Voice Literary Supplement
“After so much baseball fiction, hockey fans finally have something to call their own.” —Rochester Times-Union
“A sensitive portrayal of outdoor hockey players, whose rugged aura is derived from playing in bitter temperatures on rough and unpredictable ice” —Sports Illustrated
“These stories are not really about hockey so much as suffused with it. And LaSalle’s prose glimmers with the light of new ice on a country pond.” —Dallas Morning News
