Description

Cold-cocked is the first book to explore a woman's way of watching the game poet Al Purdy called a "combination of ballet and murder." Written by author and born-again hockey aficionado Lorna Jackson, Cold-cocked looks at hockey through a woman's eyes and heart but is written with a sportswriter's energy and rigor and a hip cultural critic's cynicism and wit.
