Summary
After losing his brother and mother within a year, twenty-two-year-old Etto finds himself adrift in his hometown, where every man's life revolves around soccer, except for his. Frustrated and lonely, Etto is faced with the seemingly impossible prospect of cobbling together the remaining pieces of his life, including his mostly nonexistent relationship with his father, the town butcher. Things begin to change for Etto when Yuri Fil, a scandal-ridden Ukrainian soccer star and his tough-love sister, Zhuki, arrive in town, and sweep him into their universe of soccer, celebrity, laughter, and fierce loyalty. Under their influence, Etto begins to reconstruct his relationship with his father and learns a few life lessons: that perhaps the game of soccer isn't just a waste of time -- and that San Benedetto, his father, love, and life itself might have more to offer him than he ever believed possible
Summary
Adrift in a soccer-obsessed seaside village on the Italian Riviera, a young man who has recently lost his mother and brother struggles to bond with his emotionally absent father before being drawn into the world of a scandalous soccer star and his tough-love sister
