sidelinesSidelines is a collection of poetic memories about sport. Each narrative poem features a recollected moment, based on personal experiences, misremembered histories, or imaginative guessing games. In the process, Sidelines explores the complex contradictions of living and loving through sport by extending the concept of “participation” to include sporting culture’s more marginal players. As a work of sport literature, this poetic biomythography considers how the sidelines are a liminal space that is peripheral, yet central to the world of sport. As a poetic memoir, it is a longing but hopeful account of how sports can inform your self-conception, even when you believe you are out of play.
