'To a natural storyteller, the ultimate compliment you can pay is to ask what happens next. Could not put it down. On the ice, in the locker room, around the fireplace, Swatuk is note perfect in this authentic tale of passion, dreams, and the love and thrill of the game. A beauty.'

Bloggat om The Last Cup
Larry Swatuk was born in Riverside, Ontario, a small town swallowed up by Windsor in 1967. Like many Canadian boys of his generation, he dreamed of a career in the NHL. And, like most Canadians of all generations, that did not happen. Nevertheless, he has managed to play some version of hockey - be it ice or inline - in different leagues at different levels on three continents. And he has happily watched many of his friends make it to the big time, both in North America and Europe. He keeps a day job as an academic, plying his trade at the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo, Ontario. He is married to Dr. Corrine Cash and they live for most of the year in Kitchener/Waterloo, but spend large chunks of their time in Africa and Europe. In the late 1980s he was awarded the Joseph Howe Prize for Poetry at Dalhousie University. In the intervening 35 years he has written and published a great many things, but this book is his first work of fiction.
