Alec Haudepin has spent the winters of his youth on the rugby field, and now, at twenty-three, his dream of playing for the All Blacks is almost within reach. 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. We welcome novels like Broken Play as it highlights, albeit fictionally, that homosexuality is no barrier to rugby skill, prowess, and success. Despite the tremendous LGBT social advances made in the last 20 years, sport lags behind. Many sports have much work to do to truly be inclusive at all levels. Unfortunately, there are remarkably few out gay competing professional footballers." - Andrew Purchas, Chairman of International Gay Rugby.
