Mal Peet, Exposure

Mal Peet

ExposureSuitable for 13-14+

Otello is a hugely talented footballer for a top South American team, a national hero, massively monied, married to the gorgeous pop star Desmerelda. When he signs a sensational club transfer deal he hits the headlines, but such exposure also leaves him open to other, more deadly accusations.
Football almost takes a backseat in this third book about the top sports journalist Faustino. Peet pushes out all the boundaries here, creating a breathtakingly clever updating of Othello, a cutting indictment of celebrity culture, football wealth and corruption, politics, homelessness and the power of the media to make and break reputations, but above all a compulsively readable story.
