THE MIRACLE OF CASTEL DI SANGRO.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
Boston: Little Brown, (1999.). First edition - 'In the summer of 1996, McGinnis... set out for the remote Italian village of Castel di Sangro, located deep within the forbidding and isolated region of the Abruzzo.' The footballers - soccer players - of this town, with a population of only 5000, had just won promotion to Serie B, the second highest professional league. This is the story of what he found there - the promotion to B was only the first of the miracles. A fascinating account and while it is a story of triumph, underneath that is a sad underton, as 'the system' wins out. 404 pp.
