RICHARD SANGER FATHERS AT HOCKEY
Poetry. Chapbook. Signal Poetry, 2020.
“Fathers at Hockey shows RICHARD SANGER at the top of his game: formally inventive and various, eloquent, unsentimental, funny, unconventionally beautiful. Everything this reader looks for in poetry.” — Steven Heighton
How does he encompass so much—from the numinous mystery of ice to a rink side chat with Umberto Eco—in a clutch of relaxed, mind-stretching, gut-punching poems about taking your kid to his games? I love this collection.” — Rick Salutin
