Title: Fever Pitch >>>>ACCLAIMED UK FIRST EDITION ...

Publisher: Gollancz

Publication Date: 1992

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Near Fine

Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good

Edition: 1st 

This is the first impression of the first edition. By December 1992 (only three months after the first impression in September 1992) the 4th impression had already been issued due very high demand. Near fine, grey boards, gold embossed gilt spine. Dustwrapper unclipped, near fine except for very mild crease at foot of spine and two miniscule pitting marks on the back. 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? Nick Hornby's brilliant mix of personal insight and reportage. This book is not just about goals and rain and semi-final replays. It's also about suburbia, death, sex and ambition. A great read (even if you're not an Arsenal fan). Bookseller Inventory # 4179
