In America, it is soccer. But in Great Britain, it is the "real" football. No pads, no prayers, no prisoners. And that's before the players even take the field.
Nick Hornby has been a football fan since the moment he was conceived. Call it predestiny. Or call it preschool. "Fever Pitch "is his tribute to a lifelong obsession. Part autobiography, part comedy, part incisive analysis of insanity, Hornby's award-winning memoir captures the fever pitch of fandom--its agony and ecstasy, its community, its defining role in thousands of young men's coming-of-age stories. "Fever Pitch" is one for the home team. But above all, it is one for everyone who knows what it "really" means to have a losing season.
