"Collaring the reader from the start, Legends of Winter Hill pushes hard and fast, propelling larger-than-life characters across the page, neverloosening its grip."
—Boston Herald

For Ice Time: A Tale of Fathers, Sons, and Hometown Heroes:

"A memorable journey, part reportage, part memoir, all heart."
—Bill Reynolds, The Providence Journal

"[Atkinson] seamlessly weaves his past with current events, detailing the team's fortunes while lovingly recalling his own at that time of life."
—The Virginian-Pilot

"A bona fide masterstroke."
—Publishers Weekly

"Far more than just a chronicle of a high school hockey season, Jay Atkinson's book is an evocative, bittersweet, poetic journey of a grown man trying, as we all try, not to recapture youth but to remember the splendor of it."
—H. G. Bissinger, author of the bestselling Friday Night Lights

For Caveman Politics:

"Atkinson keeps his plot moving at a good pace, offering enough twists to keep the reader's attention, but it is the humor and insight of his characters that make the novel work."
—The New York Times Book Review
