This is a fun, light hearted tale of an NFL quarterback who just makes the worst mistake possible: 3 interceptions in the 4th quarter to lose the AFL championship game…on national TV, of course.
Grisham, with a straight face and a light touch, tells how this third string quarterback, Rick Dockery, with no future left in the NFL heads off to Italy! Yes, it seems there’s American football in Italy!
A word of warning! Don’t read this book is you have just started a diet- the descriptions of the Italian food are just wonderful and made my mouth water! You may want to stock up on Parmesan cheese and Parma prosciutto.
This is a great book to share around the family: enough football for football fans and enough Italy for non-fans, no mystery and no courtrooms! This book is a hoot!
