9780224100045: O, Louis: In Search of Louis van Gaal

"Am I so smart or are you so stupid?" —Louis van Gaal

I started out wanting to write a book about Marco van Basten. I still do, but I dread the moment when I have to write something I know will make him unhappy. He’s not a man you wage war on. With Louis van Gaal it’s different: as a journalist he leaves you no choice. You’re not worthy of the name if you aren’t prepared to return fire when he starts yelling.

Hugo Borst is an award-winning writer, journalist and TV pundit. He is also a close friend of Louis van Gaal. Well, he used to be. O, Louis is Hugo’s attempt to get to grips with this larger-than-life character. Full of outrageous stories and unintentionally hilarious encounters, Borst details his quest to understand the man and the breakdown in their friendship. He interviews an array of experts who each interpret the great manager from the perspective of their own field—a cleric, a politician, a psychiatrist, an impersonator, a theater director, writers, poets and a trio of keen comic minds. Through these meetings as well as through his own encounters with Van Gaal, Borst is finally able to unlock the personality of this exceptional, talented, infuriating and even, occasionally, loveable man.

About the Author:

Hugo Borst is a television personality, football pundit and writer. He has been covering the Dutch game for over 30 years, and is known for his combination of excellent writing and psychological insight. His article on Marco van Basten’s father in 1994 helped inspire the genre of literary Dutch football writing and his book about Feyenoord was nominated for Belgian literary prize Gouden Uil (The Golden Owl). Simon Kuper is the author of Soccernomics.

Review:

"One of the best football writers I have ever read." —Simon Kuper, author, Soccernomics

"With O, Louis Hugo Borst once again proves that he is one of the best sports writers of the Netherlands, although the adjective ‘sports’ can just as easily be left out." —nu.nl

"A splendid document, in which Borst describes his search for the ‘Total Human Being’ Van Gaal in a honest, open-hearted and vulnerable way." —Friesch Dagblad

"Funny, passionate, probably honest, and a bit of a winger with the words. The final World Cup chapters are glorious. I’ve read excellent books about football before but never one that I found unsettling." —Roddy Doyle, Guardian

"It’s a keen insight into a larger-than-life personality." —Sport
