The Exile Book of Canadian Sports Stories Book Summary

Exciting, inspiring, shocking, and moving, this anthology collects a wide range of Canada’s literary imaginations, telling great stories about the wild and fascinating world of sport: classics like Roch Carrier’s “The Hockey Sweater,” Morley Callaghan’s “The Chiseler,” W.P. Kinsella’s “Diehard,” and Mordecai Richler’s “Playing Ball on Hampstead Heath" are presented alongside contemporary favourites such as Dionne Brand’s “I Used to Like the Dallas Cowboys,” Linda Griffiths’ “A Game of Inches,” Steven Heighton’s “A Right Like Yours,” and Diane Schoemperlen’s “Hockey Night in Canada.” Critically acclaimed novelist and poet Priscila Uppal has selected 26 remarkable and memorable “homegrown” Canadian short stories, spanning the 19th century through the present day. Written by both men and women, the generations of insights provided in this collection expose some of the most intimate details of sports and sporting life – the hard-earned victories, and some of the inevitable tragedies. You will get to know those who play the game, as well as those who watch it, coach it, write about it, dream about it, live it and die by it.
