Amazons: An Intimate Memoir by the First Woman Ever to Play in the National Hockey League
A fictitious autobiography supposedly narrated by a woman named Cleo Birdwell, centering on her experiences as the first woman to play professional hockey in the NHL. It is in some ways similar to DeLillo's second novel, the football-themed End Zone, though filled with social satire and comedy. The story follows Birdwell and her teammates on the New York Rangers, as they travel around North American cities playing games and engaging in sexual adventures.
