Surface de réparation
Olivier El Khoury

A young Belgian who doesn’t really know what he wants to do with his life, inherits from his father a passion for soccer so intense that it feels almost like a curse. As the devoted fan of a losing team, he is convinced that each of his own failures (be they professional, personal or romantic) are tied to the team’s misfortunes. With his swarthy complexion, he steers uneasily through the harsh looks and the fears related to immigration and recent acts of terrorism. With clumsy detachment, he accepts his aimless life and sexuality as his fate. His questions only draw him ever more madly into a destructive passion for his favorite team.

Through the prism of football fandom, the book takes a droll, lucid gaze at today’s youth, which is searching for meaning, despite the defeats suffered and their hazy future.
