Description

‘It’s a double celebration tonight, not that many will care about your special role. You carry the weight of the occasion on your shoulders, take it in your stride. You’ve worked hard to get here, earned these palpitations…’

From Jamaica to Sheffield to the recently formed Premier League, Uri rises through the ranks as a referee, making it to the the highest level of our national game.

But along the way he is confronted with tensions and prejudices, old and new, which emerge as his every move is watched, analysed and commented on.

Your Show is an extraordinary novel which charts one man’s pioneering efforts to make it, against the odds, to the very top of his profession and beyond.

Publisher Review

'Here is something entirely new, and brilliant: a novel-as-biography ... It will linger with you long after you finish.', ANDREW MACMILLAN 'A thrilling and emotional look at the legacy of one of football's most compelling heroes ... wonderfully inventive.', JEFFREY BOAKYE
