The People’s Book Prize – Spring Collection – Non-Fiction – “Pavel is a Geordie” by Pavel Srnicek and Will Scott

i1383-fsPavel is a Geordie By Pavel Srnicek and Will Scott

Published by Mojo Risin’ Publishing
ISBN 978-0993442421
Spring 2016


The son of a woodcutter and middle child of five, Pavel had to overcome several challenging obstacles before finally proving his worth in life as a man and footballer on the domestic and international stage.
This isn’t a typical footballer’s tale of rags to riches; it covers life as a soldier in an Eastern Bloc state under Communist rule where he nearly shot his general and of tales involving the Mafia, guns, drugs and corruption.
This is a unique and heart-warming account of one of football’s good guys: full of comedy, tragedy and heartache that will make the reader laugh and cry in equal measures.
