This remains one of my all-time favourite books of any genre and a book I have read on numerous occsaions. Tim Parks, award winning novelist & travel writer, is based in Verona and has become a fan of the controversial Italian side, Hellas Verona. He decides to follow them on their travels for a season watching every match away from home, travelling with the hardcore Hellas fans, seeing his adopted country in a very different light from coaches and terraces. The book hangs on the fixtures of Hellas with fabulous tension as they battle for survival but is so much more than just a football book. Part travelogue, part social investigation it is an absolute triumph. If this isn’t yet on your bookshelves add to basket immediately. A book to return to again and again. Bravo!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Addictive reading...each chapter is a short story, the whole book an epic" * Observer *
"Parks knows his football, and he knows Italy still better. His adopted country, in all its enduring and exasperating strengths and weaknesses, comes vividly to life" * Sunday Times *
"A fascinating emotional journey... His descriptions of Italian football are descriptions of Italy itself, its regional differences, its squabbles, its distinctive temper" * Daily Telegraph *
"An enthralling, insightful account of the real Italy" * Independent *
