Fever Pitch

Nick Hornby

(author)

Paperback
As a young boy, growing up in the Home Counties and watching his parents' marriage fall apart, the author had little sense of home. In this book, he vividly depicts his troubled relationship with his father,, his time as a teacher, and his first loves, all through the prism of the game, as he explores obsession, and the way it can shape a life.

*WINNER OF THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR*

Fever Pitch
is Nick Hornby's million-copy-selling, award-winnning football classic

'A spanking 7-0 away win of a football book. . . inventive, honest, funny, heroic, charming' Independent

For many people watching football is mere entertainment, to some it's more like a ritual; but to others, its highs and lows provide a narrative to life itself.

But, for Nick Hornby, his devotion to the game has provided one of few constants in a life where the meaningful things - like growing up, leaving home and forming relationships, both parental and romantic - have rarely been as simple or as uncomplicated as his love for Arsenal.

Brimming with wit and honesty, Fever Pitch, catches perfectly what it really means to be a football fan - and in doing so, what it means to be a man.

'Hornby has put his finger on truths that have been unspoken for generations' Irish Times

'Funny, wise and true' Roddy Doyle
