Bill Shankly was the man who changed Liverpool Football Club. Before he took over the famous Reds of Anfield, they were languishing in the second division without an FA Cup to their name. Fifteen seasons later and they'd won almost everything.

With the passionate Kop crowd behind them, Liverpool were one of England's most successful football teams and Shankly was treated like a god on Merseyside. Obsessed by the game, so much so that he came up with one of the sport's most enduring quotes: "Football's not a matter of life and death... it's more important than that.", Shankly inspired players and supporters in equal measure.

The football world was shocked when Shankly resigned - and subsequently retired - in 1974. Liverpool were set for even larger success, why would he walk away? Written by David Peace, the author behind the brilliant and controversial The Damned Utd, and shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize in 2013, Red or Dead is a fictional story that looks at the life of one man and his work - and his life after that work...

This book has been hand-picked for the Book People's FaberShop, in partnership with Faber & Faber.
