about

Talking Derby: Stories from a Life on Eight Wheel is Kate "Pain Eyre" Hargreaves' love letter to the sport of roller derby. A derby skater since 2010, Hargreaves takes readers behind the scenes, both on and off the track, into the world of women's flat-track roller derby. Her vignettes play with language and humour, incorporating the sport's unique terminology and culture, as well as a glimpse into the very real athleticism and powerful friendships of its players. With a full glossary of derby terms, including "jammer," "goat," and "cougaring," this book is perfect for derby fans, fresh meat, or those who are looking for their first introduction to the sport. Talking Derby thrusts smelly gear under its readers' noses and proudly displays its bruises.
