Hornby Nick

Fever Pitch

Fever Pitch Оценка: 1.0 (2)
In America, it is soccer. But in Great Britain, it is the real football. No pads, no prayers, no prisoners. And that s before the players even take the field.

Nick Hornby has been a football fan since the moment he was conceived. Call it predestiny. Or call it preschool. Fever Pitch is his tribute to a lifelong obsession. Part autobiography, part comedy, part incisive analysis of insanity, Hornby s award-winning memoir captures the fever pitch of fandom its agony and ecstasy, its community, its defining role in thousands of young mens  coming-of-age stories. Fever Pitch is one for the home team. But above all, it is one for everyone who knows what it really means to have a losing season.
