Jonathan Wilson makes no claim to be as good as Zidane or Messi but he once scored six goals in a game for Northwest London Jewish Boys Club against Stanmore. Via Kick and Run, his Memoir with Soccer Ball, he will take us on an international journey through England, Israel, Russia and the USA as player, coach to American kids including his own, soccer reporter for The New Yorker and unreconstructed, obsessional supporter of Tottenham Hotspur F.C. From Willesden out, this is a story of Jewish family life, a writer's life and a football life, febrile as the first five minutes of a Premier League game between rivals.
