Q. & A. With ‘Soccer Men’ Author Simon Kuper

The British author Simon Kuper was born in Uganda and grew up in England, the Netherlands, the United States, Sweden and Jamaica. His soccer writing has taken him to even more far-flung corners of the globe — even on daring forays inside the minds of Diego Maradona and Wayne Rooney — for the profiles of what he calls the “rogues, geniuses and neurotics” of world soccer that make up his new book, “Soccer Men.” Kuper’s previous books include the prize-winning “Football Against the Enemy” and the groundbreaking “Soccernomics,” written with the economist Stefan Syzmanski.
