About this book
A literary sporting biography in the vein of "My Father & Other Working Class Heroes". It is the story of Spurs legend John White, who played inside-forward for their great double-winning side of the 1960s, but who was killed by a bolt of lightning at the age of 27. It is written by his son Rob, born only 6 months before White's death, and evokes the father he never knew and a sporting era long gone. *Also appeared in August Buyer's Notes*
When John White was killed by a bolt of lightning in 1964, the football world was rocked by the tragedy. White was just 27 years of age. Nicknamed the 'Ghost' for the way that he could drift into space undetected, White played inside-forward for the double-winning Tottenham Hotspur side of the early sixties. This title portrays this young man.
