Home and Away: In Search of Dreams at the Homeless
by Dave Bidini

ISBN: 9780702238949
PUBLISHER: University of Queensland Press
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 192

With a keen eye and a pair of goalkeeping gloves, Dave Bidini followed a ragtag group of soccer players, homeless residents of the Canadian streets, to Melbourne for one of the humblest, yet purest, expression of the world game: the Homeless World Cup. What he found there was the ultimate underdog sporting event. Hundreds of players had emerged from the shadows around the world - from the barrios of Mexico and the shanties of West Africa to the streets of North America, Europe, and Australia - to share their love of the game and the natural high of victory. Bidini tracks the highs and lows of the competition and its unlikely heroes: the triumphs and the frustrations, the personal demons and the disappearances, the camaraderie and the commitment. At once hilarious and moving, Home and Away reflects both the power of sport to brighten the darkest corners of life, and the tremendous resilience of the human spirit.
