Description for The Far Corner Paperback. * Covering the game at all levels from St. James's Park to Langley Park, from Roker to Willington, THE FAR CORNER is Harry Pearson's brilliant account of the north-east's experience of the 1993-1994 football season.

A book in which Wilf Mannion rubs shoulders with The Sunderland Skinhead: recollections of Len Shakleton blight the lives of village shoppers: and the appointment of Kevin Keegan as manager of Newcastle is celebrated by a man in a leather stetson, crooning 'For The Good Times' to the accompaniment of a midi organ, THE FAR CORNER is a tale of heroism and human frailty, passion and the perils of eating an egg mayonnaise stottie without staining your trousers.
