A SPECIAL edition of Well Read focussing just on one book:
Reading The Game: A Year In Black And Yellow
This is collection of pieces of writing inspired by Borussia Dortmund last season, when they were coached by current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and when they were struggling.
The book was conceived of by Markus Langer at Dortmund’s sponsors Evonik. He joins the conversation on the phone with a very German perspective of football’s brand values. It was edited by Moritz Rinke, award winning playwright and novelist and the pieces are all very different – some written by very well respected German writers, two written by players themselves. Most of the writers come from the German authors football team. Moritz is their centre forward. He also interviewed Jurgen Klopp before his last home game. The interview garnered some tabloid headlines earlier in the year. Moritz joins and has a relaxed conversation about that interview and much more.
And to open the conversation the book is discussed by Gerry Donaldson, Anna Walsh and Simon Hughes. Hosted by Neil Atkinson, this Well Read special should offer insight not just into Klopp but into one of the world’s most fascinating football clubs – Borussia Dortmund.
