The Football Factory

(1996)
(The first book in the Football Factory Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
'Fever Pitch with testosterone and eight pints of lager. Like Fever Pitch, it is not exclusively a novel about football. This is a chronicle of a lost tribe - the white, Anglo-Saxon, heterosexual who is fed up with being told he is crap. It is the story of a flight from fear by a group of Londoners who have seen the present and know it does not work...King writes powerfully with a raw realism and clear grasp of a culture which has been denied but cannot be ignored' Glasgow Herald

Genre: Literary Fiction
