I didn’t read it yet, but I’m pretty sure I’ll love it as well, as I love the whole production of this writer. Robert Fisher Top Contributor: I bought my copy of Amazons back inbut only now did I finally read it.


In the meantime, I learned that the book was actually written by the noted author Don Delillo. Having not read Delillo’s other works, I cannot say how Amazons compares; I thought that it had an interesting concept, being the purported memoir of the first woman to play in the NHL. Cleo Birdwell proves to be an entertaining protagonist in a cast that includes her neurotic agent, the tennis player who is the object of the agent’s affections, the troubled general manager, the lonely French Canadian coach, and the former hockey player with a rare condition who undergoes a very strange treatment.

Cleo also has quite a few amorous adventures; I like one in which her lover gets turned on by her descriptions of an old fashioned Christmas in her hometown in Ohio.

Another one has Cleo noting the difference between expertise and prowess: Prowess is the application of that knowledge in an erectile state. Prowess is skill, imagination, ability, durability. Perhaps that was Delillo’s intent much like The Sopranos years later?

Hard to believe that Don DeLillo thought of this as a throwaway, or that it couldn’t stand with his other work.

The level of comic ingenuity here is staggering. I’m assuming that it’s not in print because DeLillo won’t clo it. It stands with his best comic work, and I prefer it to some of his “real” novels.
