About the Author
Praise For The Miracle of Castel Di Sangro: A Tale of Passion and Folly in the Heart of Italy…
"Rich in comic incidents, delightful characters, and dramatic surprises"
--New York Times
"What McGinniss recounts in this wonderful memoir is the stuff of Italian opera--passion, buffoonery, courage, treachery, and tragedy."
--Dallas Morning News
"Soccer acts as a lens through which the author sees the real Italy, the medium-sized industrial towns where people live and work, away from the tourist's gaze. McGinniss went looking for a soccer team and found lives filled with humor and tragedy."
--The Wall Street Journal
"A classic of cultures colliding."
