And The Sun Shines Now: How Hillsborough and the Premier League Changed Modern Britain

What happens when you take the people’s game away from the people? What happens to the game, and what happens to the people? Are things as rosy as they appear behind the Sky marketing hype?

And the Sun Shines Now looks at how the football model is of a piece with other major social transformations hatched in the late 80s and early 90s – and which are now imploding. It begins with Hillsborough, where the author nearly lost his life in Britain’s worst sporting tragedy. The book also ends there, and – indeed – colours the book throughout.
