Description

Revealing the surprising commonalities between soccer and literature, this intriguing narrative relates literary canon with the world of soccer. Connections are drawn between Don Quixote and some of the greatest football players, and comparisons are made of Hugo Sanchez and Hristo Stoichkov to famous novelists and poets and devoted soccer fans to people who spend their lives reading passionately. The author's soccer career was cut short due to an injury, after which he became an editor and literary expert, giving him the authority to write this original and intelligent perspective on the most popular sport in the world. "Revelando las semejanzas sorprendentes entre el futbol y la literatura, esta narrativa intrigante relaciona el canon literario con el mundo del futbol. Se establecen conexiones entre Don Quijote y los mejores futbolistas y comparaciones de Hugo Sanchez y Hristo Stoichkov con los grandes novelistas y poetas y de aficionados devotos del futbol con las personas que entregan su vida apasionadamente a la lectura. Despues de que su carrera futbolistica fuera truncada por una lesion, el autor se convirtio en un editor y un experto literario, dandole la autoridad de escribir esta perspectiva original e inteligente sobre el deporte mas popular del mundo."
