Wayne Gretzky's Ghost: And Other Tales from a Lifetime in Hockey
The gift book of the year for hockey fans: Roy MacGregor has been called "the best hockey writer in the country," and we finally have a collection of his very best hockey writing, revised and updated. For nearly 40 years Roy MacGregor has brought hockey, our national sport, alive on the page. From tales of the game's greats (Guy Lafleur, Jean Beliveau, Marcel Dionne) to today's stars (Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Daniel and Henrik Sedin), his magazine and newspaper coverage has revealed so much about these and so many other personalities, in moments of promise, victory and defeat. While many of these stories play out on the ice, some of the most compelling take place on the home front (Mario Lemieux's battle against cancer, the many tribulations of Bob Gainey), and MacGregor's prose shines especially when focused on the human side of a sport defined by superhuman feats of speed, aggression and power. Wayne Gretzky's Ghost will be a personal book, and also a book of challenging ideas: that Wayne Gretzky, through no fault of his own, was the worst thing to happen to hockey; that "CBC"'s "Hockey Night in Canada" has lost sight of what it is; that goaltending has become a position out of all proportion to what was intended. And who could offer a better perspective on the game than a writer who, playing as a youngster, had to face an onrushing phenom from Parry Sound named Bobby Orr, or who spent a year ghostwriting a national newspaper column for the Great One himself? When it comes to hockey, Roy MacGregor has seen (and in some cases, done) it all.
英文书摘要
For nearly 40 years, Roy MacGregor has brought our national sport alive on the pages of Canada's newspapers and magazines, and now the best of this writing is available in a volume that's a must-read for any hockey fan. He covers a list of hockey legends--players like Borje Salming, Jean Beliveau, Bobby Clarke--and legends in the making--Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin, the Sedin twins. While many of their stories play out on the ice, some of the most compelling take place away from it--Ted Nolan's struggle for acceptance, Swift Current's remarkable rise, the many tribulations of Bob Gainey and Guy Lafleur. Who could offer a better perspective on the game than a writer who, playing as a youngster, had to face an onrushing phenom from Parry Sound named Bobby Orr? When it comes to hockey, Roy MacGregor has seen (and in some cases, done) it all; in "Wayne Gretzky's Ghost," with newly added updates and reflections on each article, he shares these and many other highlights from his storied career.
