Here's my take on the book. It's all about football, food, and the Italian Superbowl. The interesting thing about this book is Mr. Grisham's ability to describe an small Italian cafe in such brilliance that one could close their eyes and taste the wine. Smell the fresh bread and over-ready pizza. He does a great job unfolding the Italian cultural experience. Oh and let's not forget about football. Thank goodness for a little Americano Football.
