9780306824210: Friday Night Lights, 25th Anniversary Edition: A Town, a Team, and a Dream

The 25th anniversary edition of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller and "Sports Illustrated" s best football book of all time, with a new afterword by the author
Return once again to the timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessathe winningest High School football team in Texas history. Socially and racially divided, Odessa isn t known to be a place big on dreams, but every Friday night from September to December, when the Panthers play football, dreams "can" come true.
"MO-JO! MO-JO!" The haunting cheer rocks the stadium filled with 20,000 fans, who are there not only to cheer on their beloved team, but also to reignite their own aspirations and dreams through the young men on the gridiron.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author H. G. Bissinger unforgettably captures a season in the life of Odessa: the coaches, parents, fans, andmost of allthe players, who carry an entire city s self-respect on their shoulders. From the prayer that opens the Watermelon Feed before the first game, through the heart-stopping season and its dramatic ending, Bissinger renders a taut, indelible scene: the stale sweltering air, the demanding play on the field, the exhilarating wins, and the punishingsometimes devastatinglosses.
"Friday Night Lights" is both a deeply moving story and a deeply disturbing one. It is a startling examination of the role of high school sports in Americabut it is about much more than just sports. As David Halberstam writes: By choosing to write about something smallthe culture of high school football in a Texas townBissinger has ended up writing about something large: the core values in our society.

Review:

Secular religions are fascinating in the devotion and zealousness they breed, and in Texas, high school football has its own rabid hold over the faithful. H.G. Bissinger, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, enters into the spirit of one of its most fervent shrines: Odessa, a city in decline in the desert of West Texas, where the Permian High School Panthers have managed to compile the winningest record in state annals. Indeed, as this breathtaking examination of the town, the team, its coaches, and its young players chronicles, the team, for better and for worse, is the town; the communal health and self-image of the latter is directly linked to the on-field success of the former. The 1988 season, the one Friday Night Lights recounts, was not one of the Panthers' best. The game's effect on the community--and the players--was explosive. Written with great style and passion, Friday Night Lights offers an American snapshot in deep focus; the picture is not always pretty, but the image is hard to forget.

About the Author:

Buzz Bissinger is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of five books, including the "New York Times" bestsellers "Three Nights in August" and "Friday Night Lights," the classic that inspired the acclaimed movie and television series.
