Stanley Park, the alter ego of a desperate and disillusioned sporting romantic abroad, needs the Jamaican Bobsleigh Team of world soccer to bring him financial and moral salvation. Set in the alien cultural maelstrom of a near-bankrupt and comically corrupt Islamic despotism, Stanleys travails as the teams media manager illuminate football for what it truly is: a spherical, hand-stitched universe of heaven and hell. Kick or be kicked is footballs moral imperative. A true Scouser, armed only with a yellow anorak and a war cry of Giblets, Stanley Parks fight for justice in Brunei is a veritable sporting Jihad. Better than Fever Pitch: more balls, more laughs, more giblets. The universal truths of football as uniquely revealed by Stanley Park. --Brian Reade, U.K.s #1 sports columnist, The Daily Mirror
