Finding words to describe this book is difficult, especially as I am notmyself gifted with the innovative, nay - ground breaking vocabulary, orcrafty word play/poetry of Bruce.
That Bruce has spent so much of his life on the football pitch and notbehind his typewriter should be a tragedy for literature - but heskillfully, stealthfully works his years of experience on the pitch intothis crime novella resulting in a story which will delight fans of murderand lower division football alike. Looking for a comparison? Nothing bearscomparison, though think Graham Greene / Harry Harris lovechild and youare somewhere near. The speeling mistakes are alright after a bit youdon't notice them, anyway you'll finish the bloody thing in half an hour,you'll never forget it though. I had to show this book to my mates, it'sunbelievably funny for me to imagine Steve Bruce actually writing thisthing, you have to read it to believe it.
Buy this book I think some of the money might go to Huddersfield Town, andyou will never look at Bruce the same way again.
