Overview Bare spille ball

Fredrik is facing the most important game in his life. As long as he rages the side-lines of the field, like he usually does, the dream of becoming a professional soccer player is within reach. But things that take place in the days before the final changes everything.

Just play ball is a book about loving the game of football, but not being prepared for the hard realities. It is about trying to forget about a girl, and getting on without a father. And it is about winning – without loosing yourself.

Winner of Trollkrittet and Uprisen 2018

Reviews Bare spille ball

Stilson limer den i krysset 29.09.2018

"Imponerende god debut om fotball, ungdom, forelskelse og de vanskelige valgene. [...] Stilson skriver godt og ujålete, karakterene trer klart fram for leseren, og spenningskurven på vei mot finalen håndterer han helt utmerket - på alle områder, ikke bare når det gjelder selve fotballen. [...] Med sin bakgrunn skildrer forfatteren fotballmiljøet levende [...] han [har] med sin debutroman skrevet seg rett opp i øverste sjikt i eliteserien"
