Oilers, shmoilers, let’s talk Stanley

This Magazine Staff

If we can take a break from all the Oiler-adulation for a sec, thanks…. I’d like to direct your attention to more worthy Stanley-Cup-related pursuits, such as the first novel by our own John Degen, The Uninvited Guest. Actually, to call this a hockey novel would be a mistake, since it seems (114 pages in) to be more about human contact and companionship. Regardless, it’s a beautifully written and imagined work thus far.

Want to sample it for yourself? Chapter excerpts are available here. But really, you don’t want to be left without a copy of your own, do you?
