The Faber Book of Soccer Summary

The Faber Book of Soccer by Ian Hamilton

This book is a collection of writing about the game of soccer with contributions by literary names like Camus and Nabokov, Hans Keller, A.J.Ayer, Karl Miller and Eammon Dunphy. It also features articles such as Martin Amis on a visit to the Far East with Watford Football Club and Bill Buford on yob violence. In addition, though, the collection draws heavily on the best of British soccer journalism and aims for a strong documentary feel, with coverage of key moments in the history of the game - the 1966 World Cup, the Sheffield Wednesday bribes case, the Heysel Stadium disaster - and some of the dressing room eloquence from the players and managers themselves.
