JOHN KING - The Football Factory

Title: The Football Factory
Description: Vintage, 1997 (Reprint), 262 blz., porto 3,45 euro NL, ISBN 9780099731917, Pocket in zeer goede staat. Engelstalig.,A raw, powerful first novel, The Football Factory centres on Tom Johnson, a reasoned 'Chelsea hooligan' who represents a disaffected society operating by brutal rules. We are shown the realities of life - social degradation, unemployment, racism, casual violence, excessive drink and bad sex - and, perhaps more importantly, how they fall into a political context of surveillance, media manipulation and division. Graphic and disturbing, occasionally very funny, and deeply affecting throughout, The Football Factory is a vertiginous rush of adrenaline - the most authentic book yet on the so-called English Disease..
