📒Friday Night Lights 25th Anniversary Edition ✍ H. G. Bissinger
📝Friday Night Lights 25th Anniversary Edition Book Synopsis : Return once again to the timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessa--the winningest high-school football team in Texas history. Odessa is not known to be a town big on dreams, but the Panthers help keep the hopes and dreams of this small, dusty town going. Socially and racially divided, its fragile economy follows the treacherous boom-bust path of the oil business. In bad times, the unemployment rate barrels out of control; in good times, its murder rate skyrockets. But every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true. With frankness and compassion, H. G. Bissinger chronicles a season in the life of Odessa and shows how single-minded devotion to the team shapes the community and inspires--and sometimes shatters--the teenagers who wear the Panthers' uniforms.
📒A Friday Night Lights Companion ✍ Leah Wilson
📝A Friday Night Lights Companion Book Synopsis : Called one of the best shows on TV by more than a dozen media publications, including Time and Entertainment Weekly, Friday Night Lights is not just one of the most critically acclaimed shows on air, it’s also one of the most watchable. Despite its focus on high school football, its masterfully crafted characters and honestly portrayed relationships make its portrait of small town Texas life compelling and relatable in ways that have nothing to do with field goals or touchdowns. Love, Loss, and Dillon Football: A Friday Night Lights Companion explores the victories and pitfalls of Dillon, Texas – both the town itself and those who live and love there. Because Friday Night Lights is so much more than just a teenage football drama: it’s about the struggle to not get trapped in the circumstances one is born into. It’s about love, it’s about loss, and, yes, it’s even about football.
📝After Friday Night Lights When the Games Ended Real Life Began An Unlikely Love Story Book Synopsis : Nearly twenty-five years ago, H. G. (Buzz) Bissinger, then a young reporter for the ÒPhiladelphia Inquirer,Ó moved to Odessa, Texas, family in tow, to follow the fortunes of the 1988 Permian High School football team. He hoped to write a celebratory treatment of a team and a town. The result: ÒFriday Night Lights,Ó a bestselling American classic that spawned the popular film as well as the series, considered by many one of the best on television. The original bookÕs most compelling character was James ÒBoobieÓ Miles, and his experience in Odessa was, as Bissinger puts it in his daringly honest sequel ÒAfter Friday Night Lights,Ó Òa symbol of everything that was wrong with high school football.Ó The complex friendship between subject and author has deepened over the years, and is, Bissinger writes, Òthe most lasting legacy of ÔFriday Night Lights,Õ or at least the legacy I care about most.Ó Heading into the 1988 season, Miles looked like a star-in-the-making, a sure bet to ascend to college and the NFL. Abandoned by his mother, beaten by his dad, he had scraped through a rough upbringing, but it appeared that success on the field was soon to redeem his pain. Then, in a meaningless preseason scrimmage, Boobie blew out his knee. By midseason he was off the team, no longer needed by his coaches, who had found themselves a new running back. ÒAfter Friday Night LightsÓÑan original 45-page story written to be read in a single sittingÑfollows Boobie through the dark years he suffered after his injury right up to a present that is imbued with a new kind of hope. It is the indelible portrait of the oddest of enduring friendships: that of a writer and his subject, a Òneurotic JewÓ and a West Texas oil-field worker, a white man raised in privilege and a black man brought up in poverty and violence, and a father and his "fourth son." Their story encompasses the realities of race and class in America. And reveals with heartbreaking accuracy how men rise again after their dreams are broken. It is a must-read for fans of the book, the movie, and the television series.
