Tis the Season

Friday Night Lights:  A Town, a Team, and a Dream by H.G. Bissinger
I love the TV series, and the book did not disappoint. Pulitzer Prize winner H.G. Bissinger lived in Odessa, TX, among high school football champions for one year in the late '8os, and here tells their story with the same unfeigned love and critical honesty that made the show so fabulous. He confronts race, class, education, politics, and still makes you agonize over who the heck's gonna win the Friday night football game. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose!
