Larry O’Connor is an author, essayist, and an editor
for the New York Post’s Business section.
This father-son memoir, which was short-listed for the William Saroyan Prize, masterfully interweaves mystical northern lore and a scalding family secret.
O’Connor’s first novel is a
gripping tale of rediscovery that is both a sensitive father-son narrative and a searing look at the darker side of Canadian hockey culture.
A classic of travel literature, Maiden Voyages is a hilarious and poignant anthology of the best writing by women on the road.
“ The Penalty Box is a must for any hockey fan seeking a creative look at our favorite sport. O'Connor speaks from the heart and clearly knows the hockey heartland of both the NHL and the junior scene. Readers will find this a genuine look at the game from a fascinating and unique perspective. The writing is A-1 and reads breezier than Sid Crosby crossing the center line. Don't miss this gem!”
-- Stan Fischler, hockey maven and co-author of The Great Game of Hockey
