1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By T. Urquhart on Dec 4 2012
Format: Paperback
Came across this volume by chance, and found it remarkable. Very moving, without shying away from what I assume is a fair portayal of the guts and physicality of hockey in the 50's, and the sometimes difficult lives of the farmboys brought up to play in the major leagues. Sawchuk emerges as a troubled soul, but very real - Maggs reveals his demons with compassion for the man. I see Quill and Quire criticized it to some degree for containing exposition here and there, and the reviewer indicated that poetry was not built for this - a ridiculous stance, and Maggs proves that a powerful story can be told with a book-length series of poems. Highly recommended.

doesn't get any better Aug. 28 2008
By J. J. Rahn - Published on
Format: Paperback
Maggs research, style and feeling are eloquently portayed in these poems. My father was a hockey nut. Every time I pick up Night Work I think about him and Terry and Gordie and the game.
