Reviews
"Superbly written...darkly exhilarating...a sort of rollercoaster chamber of horrors." - "Guardian"
"Compelling, intelligent and fully engaged." - Martin Amis
"[Buford] gatecrashes a social world that most of us have spent some portion of our lives avoiding and brings it to life on the page with a ferocious relish that only someone who was a foreigner to soccer could manage, or stomach." - Jonathan Raban
