Sightlines : A Stadium Odyssey, Paperback / softback Book

Sightlines : A Stadium Odyssey Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Simon Inglis is a fan with a mission. Fed up with being labelled an anorak, yet repeatedly led astray by the glimpse of a grandstand accross a crowded city, he searches the world for a deeper meaning behind his fascination with stadiums.

What is it, he asks en route from ancient Olympia to Sydney 2000, about men and neatly-edged turf?

Why are there more football grounds in Buenos Aires than public libraries?

Why do Auckland residents resent their local stadium while those in Chicago celebrate theirs? And what can we learn from the Indians, the Irish and a huckster from Huston?The perfect companion volume to his bestselling books on football grounds, Sightlines is full of insight, wit, anecdotes and characters from a world beyond that every sports fan will recognise.

It is proof that he is not alone.
