Fever Pitch is Nick Hornby's award-winning football classic that has sold over a million copies in the UK alone. Published in 1992, Hornby's debut novel is an autobiography of his life as an Arsenal fan. For many people watching football is mere entertainment, to some it's more like a ritual; but to others, its highs and lows provide a narrative to life itself. For Nick Hornby, his devotion to the game has provided one of the few constants in a life where the meaningful things - like growing up, leaving home and forming relationships, both parental and romantic - have rarely been as simple or as uncomplicated as his love for Arsenal.
Fever Pitch is a must-see for football fans – especially Arsenal supporters! Come down and help us celebrate football fiction and its place in our literary heritage.
