"Finnie Walsh will forever remain in my daily thoughts, not only because of the shocking circumstances of his absurd demise, but because he managed to misunderstand what was truly important even though he was right about almost everything else." So begins Steven Galloway’s critically acclaimed first novel. The story is told by Paul Woodward, Finnie's best friend and the only good child in a long line of delinquents. Hockey is one of the few things they have in common: Finnie’s family is rich and snobbish, while Paul’s father works the night shift at the local mill owned by Finnie’s father. One fateful day, the boys noisily play hockey in the Woodwards’ driveway, keeping Paul's father awake. This seemingly innocent activity triggers a shattering chain of events. Finnie Walsh has been compared to the work of John Irving, but Galloway’s voice, most particularly his unforgettable portrait of the title character, is uniquely his own.
