Fairway to Hell: Around the World in 18 Holesby Franz Lidz
Synopses & Reviews
Golf may be game with character, but for too long it has lacked enough true characters. In Fairway to Hell, Franz Lidz takes a globe-girdling and wholly serendipitious journey in search of golf's real soud, visiting all the margins of that anciet and maddening game. Far removed from the usual golf magazine perspective, he finds unlikely heroes and wildly comical connections. Imagine playing a round with Bill Murray or with Judas Priest, or hitting the links on an iceberg, or in a nudist colony-though not at the same time. In the oddball tradition of P.G. Wodehouse's classic. The Heart of a Goof and David Feherty's 2004 colelction Somewhere in Ireland, a Village is Missing Its Idiot, Lidz's dispatches are infused with a sense of the elegant and the absurd. In other words, a sense of golf.
Lidz takes a serendipitous journey around the world in search of golf's real soul, visiting all the margins of that ancient and maddening game. Far removed from the usual golf magazine perspective, he finds unlikely heroes and wildly comical connections.
