About the Author

Brian Williams is a journalist on the Guardian, where he has worked for the past 25 years. Married with two grown-up children, he lives in Brighton & Hove. Williams has supported West Ham for 50 years - and he has got the grey hairs to prove it!


Whichever team you support, Nearly Reach the Sky is a smashing read, beautifully written - even if it is about West Ham and I'm a Sheffield United fan. David Marsh Oh, the exquisite torture of being the fan of a so-nearly club - A poignant portrait of the unrequited football supporter, brilliantly illuminated by vivid snapshots of those rare but cherished glimpses of glory. Jeff Powell Brian Williams is a proper fan, and Nearly Reach the Sky is a proper fan's book. The Guardian Part nostalgia trip, part love letter to a soon-to-be departed old friend, it's an enjoyable account of modern fandom. FourFourTwo Brian Williams has got in ahead of the crowd ... lovingly pouring over every detail of his life as a fan, and the Upton Park match day experience. Blowing Bubbles Magazine
