Karl Ove Knausg?rd is sitting at home in Sk?ne with his wife, four small children and a dog. He is watching football on TV and falls asleep in front of the set. He likes 0-0 draws, cigarettes, coffee and Argentina. Fredrik Ekelund is away, in Brazil, where he plays football on the beach and watches matches with others. Fredrik loves games that end up 4-3 and teams that play beautiful football. He likes caipirinhas and Brazil.Home and Away is an unusual football book, in which the two authors use football and the World Cup in Brazil as the arena for reflections on life and death, art and politics, class and literature. What does it mean to be at home in a globalised world? This exchange of letters opens up new vistas and gives us stories from the lives of two creative writers.
