The title of this book grabbed me right away, because I’d personally do nearly anything for pizza. Turns out there’s lots more to this book by John Grisham than meets the eye.
It’s the story of Rick Dockery, a prematurely washed up NFL quarterback who flees (almost literally) to Italy to play for the Parma Panthers of the Italian “NFL.” The football part is fun, but even better are the cultural insights (I nearly cried with laughter as Rick undergoes some of the same experiences I had when I lived in Italy!) and the way Dockery finds himself and a true love for football. I listened to it in CD, but that way or in print, it’s worth your time for sure.
