Product description

From Booklist

Parks, a gifted essayist who has examined his status as a British expatriate in Italy and the nature of Italian childhood in previous works, here turns his attention to the Italian national pastime, soccer. Parks spent a year traveling with the Hellas Verona football club, which has recently enjoyed a promotion into the elite Series A division, and the resulting essays manage to touch on every facet of Italian life. Parks takes the reader into an unforgettable world, replete with capricious referees, bloodthirsty fans, devoted Web masters of fan sites, and the players themselves, who are alternately heroic and human. As the season progresses, the club's exhausting schedule yields agonizing results when players are pushed to their physical limits in their quest to prove themselves. Parks' keen attention to detail brings the game to life, alive even to the most casual observer, all the while offering perceptive commentary on Italian culture, politics, and social dynamics. With great wit and insight, Parks has written a highly enjoyable book that will appeal particularly to readers of Joe McGinnis' similar The Miracle of Castel di Sangro (1999). Brendan Dowling
