Abstract:

An extraordinary year in the life of acclaimed sportswriter S.L. Price, who determined to see the world by discovering how games are played in places other than the United States. He settled his family in France, immersed himself in a nuclear-fueled cricket rivalry between Pakistan and India, struggled with Olympic athletes in Greece, and explored the foreign terrain of soccer madness from Manchester to Marseille. All the while, he and his wife and children try to cope with a place that seems to revile Americans of any stature, sporting or otherwise.
