12 Bidini, Dave THE FIVE HOLE STORIES
Victoria, British Columbia Brindle and Glass 2006 1897142188 / 9781897142189 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good 8vo Matt James; 
111 pp. Blue boards lettered in gilt on the spine; red endpapers; headband; illustrated in black and white by Matt James; dustjacket by Matt James. Lightly rubbed at the corners of the dustjacket; no interior markings. Each of these stories in this playful, irreverent book takes a headlong run at the hockey dressing room, and each knocks down the door. Said the Toronto Star, "Anyone who revels in the smell that seeps from a hockey bag or the language that seeps from a locker room will appreciate where Bidini is coming from." Five Hole has two definitions: 1 - The space between a goalie's legs. 2 - The book that brings Canada's two favourite pastimes - sex and hockey - together at last. The Contents are: One Hundred Bucks; Why I Love Wayne Bradley; Joan; I am Bobby Wolf; Cortina; and The Five Hole.
