About the book: 
'Football is a pleasure that hurts'
 
This unashamedly emotional  history of football is a homage to the romance and drama, spectacle and  passion of a 'great pagan mass'. Through stories of superstition,  heartbreak, tragedy, luck, heroes and villains, those who lived for  football and those who died for it, Eduardo Galeano celebrates the glory  of a game that - however much the rich and powerful try to control it -  still retains its magic.
