Description

The winner of the 2008 Canada Reads debate is a sometimes funny, sometimes poignant story about an aging hockey star. But you don’t need to be a hockey fan to enjoy it. Tracked down by a young advertising executive, King Leary is invited to Toronto to record a ginger ale commercial alongside the NHL’s newest hockey sensation. Leary travels to the big city with his roommate and a slightly off-kilter male nurse, but he’s also accompanied by his ghosts: Clay Clinton, his one-time best friend and former hockey manager; Manny Oz, Leary’s challenger for the crown; and the hockey-playing monks of Bowmanville Reformatory, where Leary’s career began. In this fast-paced, often quirky novel, read by Michael Hogan and produced by Heather Brown of CBC Vancouver, Quarrington manages a magical balance between comedy and pathos.
