If you're looking to pick up a book over Christmas (or one for a hockey fan on your list), I've got two to recommend:
When the Lights Went Out
How One Brawl Ended Hockey's Cold War and Changed the Game
by Gare Joyce
Searching for Bobby Orr
by Stephen Brunt
I'm just starting to sink my teeth into both books, but Joyce and Brunt are two of the best sportswriter's around, and so far, I'm duly impressed. I'll have more once I burn through these tomes (something I can start in earnest after finishing Richard Ford's The Sportswriter) — which given my blog-load might be a few weeks.
Too many great books, too little time.
