Yet for all the giddy uses of the archaic, “Life After Rugby” stays contemporary due in part to its odes to movies, singers, and celebrities.
The stories are slow burners, with men who each creep towards their own revelations.

It would be easy to devour this book in one sitting but it’s worth savoring.
Metaphor is so rich, in Jones’ poetry, it can’t be isolated.

The result is an anthology that is sleeker than its predecessor.
