Overview

A new collection of soccer writing by the bestselling author of Fever Pitch.

After the phenomenal success of Fever Pitch, Nick Hornby tried to avoid writing about soccer, for fear that he’d be writing about it forever. But occasionally over the years he’s found it impossible to turn down a particularly enticing assignment or, in the case of the 2012-13 Premier League, just unable to resist  writing about that most spectacular of seasons.
 
Fortunately for those who love great writing about soccer, all these fugitive pieces are collected in Fan Mail. You can follow the fortunes, as Hornby did, of a hopelessly out-of-their-depth Cambridge United in the old Second Division, discover why Perry Groves was an unlikely hero among Arsenal fans, enjoy Hornby trying to explain the World Cup to Americans, and share with him the pain of watching his national team.
