Football in Fiction Book Description :

Football in Fiction represents the most comprehensive historical mapping and analysis of novels related to association football (soccer).

The book uses and adapts two distinct reading models of abstraction, in conjunction with closer textual analyses.

Alec Wilder Book Description :

The music of Alec Wilder (1907-1980) blends several American musical traditions, such as jazz and the American popular song, with classical European forms and techniques.
