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. For Nick Hornby, his devotion to the game has provided one of the 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.
‘Funny, wise and true’
‘Hornby has put his finger on truths that have been unspoken for generations. Furthermore, he writes beautifully. A damn good read. Buy it’
‘A sophisticated study of obsession, families, masculinity, class, identity, growing up, loyalty, depression and joy. Hornby should write for England’ ‘Utterly hilarious. Even football-haters will be beguiled’
