Granta 45: Gazza Agonistes

Autumn 1993

Ian Hamilton’s story of soccer superstar Paul Gascoigne: at play, on show, in the press, in pain, in distress. This is a fan’s account of a player’s life and of a fan’s obsession, of a sports celebrity and of our apparent need to have one. Also in this issue: Jonathan Raban on the flooded Mississippi, Timothy Garton Ash with Erich Honecker.
