Synopsis

Tim Parks, award winning novelist & travel writer, is based in Verona and has become a fan of the controversial Italian side, Hellas Verona. He decides to follow them on their travels for a season watching every match away from home, travelling with the hardcore Hellas fans, seeing his adopted country in a very different light from coaches and terraces. The book hangs on the fixtures of Hellas with fabulous tension as they battle for survival but is so much more than just a football book. Part travelogue, part social investigation it is an absolute triumph. If this isn’t yet on your bookshelves add to basket immediately. A book to return to again and again. Bravo!
