Hornby’s triumph is that, without glossing over its large-scale stupidities and discomforts, he makes the terrace life seem not just plausible but sometimes near heroic in its single-minded vehemence, its heart-shaking highs and lows’ Ian Hamilton, Independent on Sunday. An absolutely marvellous book’ Matthew Engel, Guardian. We don’t have a lot of time for Arsenal round my way but even we rose to applaud Fever Pitch. A compulsory text even for Chelsea fans’ Giles Smith, Independent.

Fever Pitch is his tribute to a lifelong obsession
Publisher: Victor Gollancz, 1992. In America, it is soccer. But in Great Britain, it is the real football. No pads, no prayers, no prisoners. Fever Pitch is his tribute to a lifelong obsession. Part autobiography, part comedy, part incisive analysis of insanity, Hornby’s award-winning memoir captures the fever pitch of fandom-its agony and ecstasy, its community, its defining role in thousands of young mens’ coming-of-age stories. Fever Pitch is one for the home team. But above all, it is one for everyone who knows what it really means to have a losing season.
Fever Pitch is the anatomy of that obsession, a knowing, bittersweet, and very funny autobiography in which the writer's life is. .Hornby and Arsenal were made for each other. As a teenager he was 'dour, defensive, argumentative, repressed' - and, season after season, so were Arsenal.
Fever Pitch is the anatomy of that obsession, a knowing, bittersweet, and very funny autobiography in which the writer's life is measured not in years, but in seasons - not by the Gregorian calendar, but by the Gunners' fixture list. First, it's a sound corrective to Bill Buford's inaccurate and morally repellent Among The Thugs.
