In 1989, 18-year-old John Finch spends his Saturdays following Nottingham Forest up and down the country, and the rest of the week trudging the streets of his hometown as a postal worker. Leading inexorably towards the FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough, the worst sporting disaster on British history, 'Fan' glides between 1989 and 2004, when the true impact of this tragic day becomes evident.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Danny Rhodes' spare prose is convincing . . . he asks important questions about social justice, but also tells a compellingly human story. * New Statesman *
If you watched football in teh 1980s, you'll want to read it. If you started watching the game post-Hillsborough, you MUST read it. -- Steven Wilson * Match of the Day commentator *
Rhodes depiction of disaster and ensuing PTSD has the ring of authenticity: he was at Hillsborough that fateful day. * Daily Mail *
