Adjustments - A Novel by Vic Fortezza

Life, Love, Football

A young assistant football coach, Brooklyn born, adjusts to life in the midwest, marriage, fatherhood, the changing racial mix at his high school, and to the imminent dismissal of his mentor, the head coach. Set in the mid 70's, the novel is not about a championship but an average team preparing for its game against its crosstown rival and the unfortunate racial overtones surrounding it. 

Professional Reviews

By Ann Hite
Rick wondered if there were, anywhere in America, a wholesome rivalry between neighboring schools, one that did not feature complex, dark undercurrents. It seemed that such innocence was dead, that the nation would never again experience it. Rick Caso is an everyday guy that coaches high school football, is married, and finds himself dealing with relationship issues. He struggles with the way life ought to be rather than how life has turned out. These are battles many of us can understand. Mr. Fortezza uses football as a metaphor for life. Ah, but that is such a nice neat way to describe Adjustments; a novel that is anything but nice and neat. Vic Fortezza knows his football. He not only takes the readers into the the grit of the game and competition, but he also reveals the intricate lives of those involved. Readers, whether they love football or not, will fall for this realistic story of life and enjoy it to the very last word. Reviewed by Ann Hite, author of Beautiful Wreck
