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 (where he rode a bike around with Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong) 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. Price’s great sense of humor recalls moments with American athletes abroad, and memories of times he shared with figures such as Ted Williams and Michael Jordan. All the while, he and his wife and children try to cope with a place that seems revile Americans of any stature, sporting or otherwise. This memoir will appeal not only to sports fans but to any reader who enjoyed A Year in Provence or Under the Tuscan Sun and, certainly, to the legions of loyal fans of S.L. Price.

S.L. Price is an award-winning sportswriter whose work has appeared in The New York Times and Sports Illustrated, among many publications. He and his family now live in Washington, D.C.
