Fever Pitch

Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby

Fever Pitch is the autobiographical story of British author Nick Hornby. It compares, contrasts, and conflates the fortunes of the Arsenal Football Club with the ups and downs in the author's own life. The book is largely a collection of essays about individual matches, with each match scrutinized by Hornby and dissected for symbolic content. Hornby also critically examines his childhood hero-worship of footballers and the different way in which he feels about sporting events as an adult.
