Короткое описание книги

A New York Times Editors' Choice &quote;[T]he stuff of great literature.

&quote; The New York Times |&quote;Red or Dead is a winner.

&quote; The Washington PostThe place where the swinging sixties started Liverpool, England, birthplace of the Beatles wasn't so swinging.

Amid industrial blight and a bad economy, the port town's shipping industry was going bust and there was widespread unemployment, with no assistance from a government tightening its belt.

Even the Beatles moved to London.

Into these hard times walked Bill Shankly, a former Scottish coal miner who took over the city's perpetually last-place soccer team.

He had a straightforward work ethic and a favorite song a silly pop song done by a local band, ';You'll Never Walk Alone.

' Soon he would have entire stadiums singing along, tens of thousands of people all dressed in the team color red.

.

as Liverpool began to win.

.

.

And soon, too, there was something else those thousands of people would chant as one: Shank-lee, Shank-lee.

.

.

In Red or Dead, the acclaimed writer David Peace tells the stirring story of the real-life working-class hero who lifted the spirits of an entire city in turbulent times.

But Red or Dead is more than a fictional biography of a real man, and more than a thrilling novel about sports.

It is an epic novel that transcends those categories, until there's nothing left to call it but as many of the world's leading newspapers already have a masterpiece.

From the Hardcover edition.
