For American Football fans!,
This review is from: Playing for Pizza (Hardcover)Grisham steps away from the legal world to write about the tribulations of American Football player Rick Dockery and his enforced move to Palma, Italy to play for local team `The Panthers'. Although it takes a while for him to adjust, Rick soon falls in love with the locals and shares their lust for food, architecture and most of all, football.
Although this book doesn't make a huge amount of sense if you don't understand the intricacies of the Superbowl, the intricate descriptions of the gastronomic delights and architecture will warm even the frostiest of readers. There's also quite a nice love story woven into the book, which juxtaposes nicely with the match play.
