Now that I’ve finished off Stephen King’s Under the Dome I’m now going to head in a completely different direction for my next book. Next up is Tim Park’s football journal A Season With Verona which details the British author’s experience of spending a season following the club Hellas Verona and its supporters.
I can’t say I know much about the club or the author but my understanding is that book explores football culture in Italy as well as providing insights into the country itself. This one came as a recommendation from Newkie. I think its a good time to read a book like this as we’re kicking off football season. In fact, by a stroke of good fortune, I managed to secure a couple of box tickets to the Brisbane Roar game tonight at Suncorp.
Enjoy your weekend everyone and good luck to whichever team you support.
