Promotional Information

A wonderfully well-written travelogue taking in life and football behind the old Iron Curtain. BEHIND THE CURTAIN is in the bestselling tradition of Simon Kuper, Jimmy Burns, David Winner, etc. A strong contender for the William Hill and National Sporting Club awards. As a teenager Jonathan Wilson holidayed in the former Yugoslavia; as a young journalist for onefootball.com and the Financial Times his obsession with the region took root. In terms of travel writing and sports writing, BEHIND THE CURTAIN is a worthy successor to FOOTBALL AGAINST THE ENEMY - now in its 15th impression in paperback. This is a must for armchair travellers and football fans alike. 'It's a book that had to be written. Excellent' Simon Kuper.

About the Author

Jonathan Wilson is the Football Correspondent for the Financial Times, and has travelled widely throughout Eastern Europe.

Reviews

'With style and erudition, [Wilson] proves that football is a metaphor, an allegory, and much more than just a game' THE TIMES 'Enlightening' THE SCOTSMAN
