“Irreverent. Nevertheless, essential.”--Doug Halcomb, Hockey Ministries International
 
“I think I can say without fear of contradiction that the hockey haikuist Pat Scluney taught me everything I know about physical violence and verbal restraint. That his work is now preserved in Hockey Haiku is a literary event of fastidious brutality. Though I got a free copy, I'll buy many more for my friends, who will laugh delightedly well beyond their allotted number of syllables, just as I did.”--Robert Olen Butler, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction

review by . February 07, 2009
I am very fond of haikus, but in this case it is necessary to understand the game of hockey to appreciate most of these. Since I have only watched one hockey game in my life, the U.S. Olympic team defeating the Soviets in the 1980 Olympics, and don't understand the sport, I was lost through much of this book. Nevertheless, I am sure that hockey fans will find them entertaining.
