Praise

"Rich in comic incidents, delightful characters, and dramatic surprises"
New York Times

"What McGinniss recounts in this wonderful memoir is the stuff of Italian opera–passion, buffoonery, courage, treachery, and tragedy."
Dallas Morning News

"Soccer acts as a lens through which the author sees the real Italy, the medium-sized industrial towns where people live and work, away from the tourist’s gaze. McGinniss went looking for a soccer team and found lives filled with humor and tragedy."
The Wall Street Journal

"A classic of cultures colliding."
The Independent
