But his rise to prominence uncovers quiet sadness about the part of his identity he has always struggled to acknowledge. 

"Broken Play captures magnificently the internal conflict and tumult experienced by so many young gay sportsmen struggling to find their true identity. Their sporting world and their attraction to men appears incomprehensible and irreconcilable."

Exploring social change with beguiling subtlety, Broken Play is a richly observed and emotionally charged literary work of identity and longing, violence and redemption, and a timely evocation of a reluctant pioneer.
