In this compelling and sensationally honest book, Paul Kimmage strips away the public facade of an international football star.

A man struggling to find answers as he speeds towards the most terrifying juncture in sport. The End.

Recensione:
'I can only describe it as the best Irish sports book I've read and among the most courageous ever written' Tom Humphries, THE IRISH TIMES
'...but why did Tony Cascarino want to share all this with us? We know now, and it was a privilege to have been introduced. Far more than the goals, this is Tony Cascarino's legacy to the game' David Walsh, THE SUNDAY TIMES
'A remarkable tale...makes the most fascinating reading' DAILY MAIL
'By any standards it is a good book, by the standards normally associated with the genre it is an extraordinary book...Cascarino has something to say and having started talking has been brave and/or reckless enough not to stop' OBSERVER
'A New Masterpiece. If you only buy one football book this year make sure that it is the truly extraordinary Full Time: The Secret Life of Tony Cascarino'
THE TIMES
'If it were fiction this book could win the Booker Prize, ...Kimmage writes with such brilliant economy, such compelling clarity, as to shame the Martin Amises of this world. Full Time belongs with the finest sports books ever written.'
EAMON DUNPHY
'It has been another hectic year for autobiographies...but they have been blown out of the water by the arrival, late in the year, of Full Time: The Secret Life of Tony Cascarino. The searing honesty of Cascarino and the breathless style of his ghostwriter, Paul Kimmage, have produced a book that shreds the opposition. There has been nothing to match Cascarino's dark confessional since Eamon Dunphy's Only A Game? appeared in the mid-1970's.'
TIMES
'It's Angela's Ashes with half-time oranges... The Secret Life of Tony Cascarino is a footballer's autobiography like no other. The most astonishing sports book of the year.'
OBSERVER
'There has been an unusually good batch of football autobiographies this season... this, coming from the most unlikely source of all, is by far the best. Fantastic.'
INDEPENDENT
'It is doubtful if any footballer has examined his life with such honesty. If the football authorities cared about players, they would insist that every young footballer read this story of life in the fast lane.'
SUNDAY TIMES
'Compared with the standard-issue footballer's autobiography, this is Tolstoy. What it says is astonishing.'
GUARDIAN
'It's a lot more interesting than David Beckham's.'
GUARDIAN
'This has been a good year for frank and funny autobiographies. Full Time: The Secret Life of Tony Cascarino is outstanding.'
DAILY TELEGRAPH
'The book that has deservedly grabbed most attention this year is Tony Cascarino's Full Time. The story is compelling.'
NEW STATESMAN
'The one book I feel bad about is Full Time: the Secret Life of Tony Cascarino by Paul Kimmage, which people are now calling the sports book of the decade. We published his first book A Rough Ride, but somehow this one escaped us.'
RACHEL CUGNONI, RANDOM HOUSE
'Cascarino's story makes the sporting read of the year.'
FINANCIAL TIMES
'Possibly the best insight yet into the lives, loves and fears of a professional footballer. Unmissable.'
OBSERVER
'Catch it as quick as you can'
TELEGRAPH
'Full Time: the Secret Life of Tony Cascarino is one of those rare books that, quite simply, has everything.'
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
'Cascarino and Kimmage have combined to produce a book that transcends its genre'
IRISH POST
'an extraordinary book, beautifully written and brutally honest - a sports book for grown-ups. A new standard for soccer biographies.'
IRISH TIMES
'It's difficult to tell whether the magic of Full Time is the result of Cascarino's eloquent honesty or Paul Kimmage's clever prose, or both, but it has that elusive charm that will appeal even to those who are not passionate about the game.'
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
'At turns funny and astonishing, this is the greatest football autobiography ever...mesmerising' GQ
