A Life Too Short but Still Insignificant for Most


This is by way of a brief follow-on from my post last week about Ronald Reng’s biography of Robert Enke.  It would seem that despite being crowned the Sports Book of the Year, beating some other very well written books by esteemed authors and sportsmen and opening up the dark world of depression amongst sportsmen, A Life Too Short remains hard to find in most high street book stores.  Is it because it is too macabre for the Christmas displays? Is it because Enke was and Reng is German? Or is it another sign that depression (and suicide) remain things that aren’t the stuff of great sporting books?  Whatever it is, the bookshelves of the West Midlands’ book retailers are have a gap worth filling if this subject is to be taken to a wider audience who otherwise might not consider it a problem.
