* Covering the game at all levels from St. James's Park to Langley Park, from Roker to Willington, THE FAR CORNER is Harry Pearson's brilliant account of the north-east's experience of the 1993-1994 football season.
Harry Pearson was born on the day Petula Clark had her first number one hit single. His cousin is married to the chairman of the Rare Breeds Society. He is very tall.
** 'Savagely funny and frequently moving.some of the humour is as full-blooded as a tackle by Bryan Robson, and if at times the author wanders off at a tangent, like Chris Waddle on a bad day, then that is the capricious nature of football.' -DAILY TELEGRAPH **'Forget Nick Horby's FEVER PITCH, this is the football book of the new age, a mix of heroism, humour and Norman Hunter, but mainly humour.'
