Playing For Pizza By John Grishman

This book is  about a football player who has been severely injured while playing in a USA league. After he recovers, no team here will hire him. He finds a team in Italy. This story is about the difficulties in the way the game is played, they play for love of the game, not money. He also has to adjust to a new way of life with people he cannot understand and they cannot understand him. There is a love interest, but the story is football. This is not like most Grisham books I have read. More human interest. Reading level: Adult
