Having published my second book Finding Moonshine I officially qualify to play for the England Writers Football Team. My publisher Fourth Estate has sponsored our kit and we had a match on Saturday against the Spanish Writers Football Team in Madrid. After 90 minutes we were winning 5:2. The Spanish though had booked the pitch for two hours so we battled on another 15 minutes and still managed to be ahead at 6:4. The rest of the weekend was spent talking Foucault and Velazquez at the Prado washed down with some excellent Rioja.
Details of the team can be found at the Writers Team Website
