Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby 1st / 1st 1992
Published by Gollancz in 1992 this is the first edition / first impression. It is a very good copy. Dust wrapper has some minor rubbing to the top of the spine. Book has very light wear. Pages are clean - there is one previous owners inscription to the front fep. Overall very good first impression copy.
This is a book about identity, belonging, obsession; about afternoons in the driving rain and bitter cold and glorious, unforgettable goals; getting your head read in Hampstead and punched at Highbury; the dazzling skills of the gods of football and leaving your girlfriend lying fainted on the terraces because Arsenal are about to score. It's about the moments of ecstasy in one man's life. And his pain. And it's about the only true question there is: Which comes first, Football or Life?
