During the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, two noted writers exchanged letters about the matches, life, family, philosophy and so much more. Fredrik Ekelund sent dispatches from the ground in Brazil to Karl Ove Knausgaard who watched the matches from home in Sweden. If you haven't read it yet, go cop a copy.
For 2018, Guerrilla FC has decided to do the same. Adrian Kidaman is watching from home in Washington, DC while Justin Salhani communicates from the ground in Russia (ed note - he's back in Italy now but spent eleven days in Kazan and Moscow).
The first piece in this series will be out soon. In it, Adrian and Justin talk about football, the contrasting World Cup experience in the US vs Russia, and life in general.
