    Selected as a Book of the Year 2016 in The Times and Evening Standard Karl Ove Knausgaard is sitting at home in SkOne 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 friends. Fredrik loves games that end up 4-3 and teams that play beautiful football. He likes caipirinhas and Brazil. In Home and Away, two creative writers use football and the 2016 World Cup in Brazil to reflect on life and death, art and politics, class and literature. This engrossing book gives us insight into their lives and asks what does it mean to be at home in a globalised world?
