It is, on the one hand, a sports dramady. I believe it is also something else: the polar opposite of the archetypal American road trip book, that is at once memoir but also journal of self discovery. Mr. Dwyer has written, intentionally or not, the post-modern response. The journey is one of escape, not of self discovery. If there is any self awareness at all, it is coming home that brings it.
I'd recommend 30 Days Across America to anyone: soccer fan or not.
The book is about America and America meeting the world as two college kids, one with more dollars than sense, race around the country to see as many 1994 World Cup games as they can. A sidetrip into the dark side of alcohol abuse adds to the drama. Most of all it is a story about friendship between an unlikely pair of Jersey boys. One from Montclair and the other from West New York, town separated by about 15 miles of road and a fairly vast socio-economic chasm.
