Football in Sun and Shadow




An emotional history of football from one of Latin America's most distinguished writers.

Eduardo Galeano issues forth on the immortality of the world's greatest game. Mirth and tragedy are spun into this emotional history of football, from the terrible deaths of the 11 who dared beat the Nazis in a game, to the tale of Guiseppe Meazza whose shorts fell down at an opportune moment. A humorous and poignant portrayal of the history of a much-loved sport.
