Description - The Football Factory by John King
A raw, powerful first novel, THE FOOTBALL FACTORY centres on Tom Johnson, a reasoned 'Chelsea hooligan' who represents a disaffected society operating by brutal rules. We are shown the realities of life - social degradation, unemployment, racism, casual violence, excessive drink and bad sex - and, perhaps more importantly, how they fall into a political context of surveillance, media manipulation and division. Graphic and disturving, occasionally very funny, and deeply affecting throughout, THE FOOTBALL FACTORY is a vertiginous rush of adrenaline - the most authentic book yet onthe so-called English Disease.
