Football in Sun and Shadow

Author: Eduardo Galeano
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

Football in Sun and Shadow, a poetry book by Eduardo Galeano, is one of my favorite books. In the poems Galeano captures how much soccer means to the world. The poems are about people and events from Argentina to Nigeria. He describes the beauty of a goal, and the art of dribbling. He tells the story of how two Mexican reporters were saved in Yugoslavia because the troops' favorite player was Mexican star Hugo Sanches. Everything he wrote flowed together smoothly, it was like music to my ears.
