Soccer in Sun and Shadow

No one had more interesting things to say about the South American passion for football. But if he wrote about the trauma induced by that thrashing, nobody translated it into English. Either way, it was a loss. Galeano died this week in Montevideo, his birthplace, aged He was widely mourned as a great historian and novelist but none of the obituaries failed to mention that he was also the author of Football in Sun and Shadow.

Thank you! In his dreams, he was a star. This updated edition serves as a reminder that this is not just a classic sports book. In more than chapters, sketches, really, most of not more than a page or two, the author explores soccer from a wide variety of angles and looks at some of the major touchstones, including the World Cup games and dozens of significant goals. Galeano does not endeavor to provide a complete history of the game but rather, set pieces exploring great players, moments and themes in the development of the game he deeply loves but does not spare from criticism. On virtually every page, Galeano uses a phrase or sentence that will leave readers in awe of his gifts.

  1. One of Sports Illustrated's Top Sports Books of All Time—a history of soccer that “stands out like Pelé on a field of second-stringers” (The New Yorker).
