Perhaps the only book you ll read this year in which the authors attempt to find a soccer equivalent to Virginia Woolf s prose. want voetbal is toch niet anders dan opium voor het volk Het is de verdoving, de vlucht, de fictie Maar is ook het tegenovergestelde Voetbal maakt contact mogelijk, je kunt er met jan en alleman over praten Ook met buren en medepassagiers het is dat wat ons bindt, het is een referentiekader Aan het woord is Karl Ove Knausgard, Noor, wereldbekend als schrijver van de Mijn strijd boeken, woonachtig in Zweden Hij schrijft bovenstaande in 2014 in zijn derde brief aan Fredrik Ekelund, Zweed, schrijver, vertaler en tolk en een stuk minder wereldberoemd in ieder geval in Nederland dan Knausgard Het is Ekelund die in zijn eerste brief direct de toon zet als hij begint met een herinnering uit 1983 toen hij in Parijs aan zijn afstudeerscriptie over Georges Navel werkte Overdag bezocht ik het Coll ge de France, waar ik naar Michel Foucault en Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie luisterede, of ik sloop de cole Normal binnen om naar Jacques Derrida te luisteren Op 19 november ontmoet hij Juan, een Mexicaan, die hem via de gedichten van Octavia Paz Spaans leert en waarmee de Latijns Amerikaanse deur voor Ekelund op een kier gezet wordt Op het moment dat Ekelund de brief schrijft is hij er zo n twintig keer geweest, en staat hij op het punt om naar Rio de Janeiro af Is there anything better than Murakami and running Yes, Knausgaard and football This time he has a foil in effervescent Swede Fredrik Ekelund, a perfect contrast to the ascetic Norwegian The book is a series of letters or emails likely between the two writers exchanged during the World Cup summer of 2014 Ekelund is by himself in Brazil, Knausgaard is with his family in Sweden Both share their thoughts, news, stories, and of course insights into matches as the tournament progresses First of all if was a real treat to read relatively serious football analysis from two thoughtful writers Perhaps it s obvious but I found it fun that their personalities were so stereotypically reflected in the style of football they supported the dour, disciplined, deeply analytical Knausgaard preferring defensive, tactically astute, win at all costs teams like Italy and Argentina while the out going Ekelund opting for the flamboyant talents of Brazil Beyond personality, reading their commentary got me thinking that the team one supports can also reflect one s stage of life When I was young I often preferred underdogs perhaps I could see a bit of myself in their quest the older I get the I lean towards dynasties, as I now appreciate how difficult it is to sustain greatness year after year I wonder if this line of thought could be carried over to Football is a simple game Twenty two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win Gary LinekerIt s the 16th of June 2018 and another Football World Cup is upon us that s soccer for my American friends In fact the tournament started two days ago with the first match between Russia and Saudi Arabia I have to confess that I m not a great football fan, and my knowledge of the game is limited I don t even know all of the players names of my team Germany But every four years I crawl from under my rock, and watch some games.While I m writing this, another game, the first one for today, between France Le Bleau and Australia The Socceroos just started In fact, I finished the book with the whistle for the kick off of this game, and I hope I can finish my review before the game ends The last World Cup was held exactly four years ago, between June 12 and July 13, in Brazil And that s what the two authors wrote about The original title in Norwegian of this book is Hjemme Borte, which could be translated as Home and Away and did, as I see, when I look at the English edition This, of course, is the first football metaphor but it s also an apt description of the book and the situation of the authors The Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausg rd Two World Class Writers Reveal Themselves To Be The Ultimate Soccer Fans In These Collected LettersKarl Ove Knausgaard Is Sitting At Home In Sk Ne
