“Lenny Boyle [is a] darts expert”
Do you love darts? Wish it was covered with the respect it deserves by the mainstream media? But at the same time realise it’s a hilarious, entertaining and at times bizarre sport?
Then this is the book for you.
Lenny Boyle takes you by the hand through a transcendental tour of the tangled topography of tungsten. Or to put it in a way that makes him sound less of a tosser (I’m not used to writing in the third person) Lenny Boyle guides you through the highlights and the lowlights of a deeply odd year in the world of professional darts. He looks beneath and below and sideways at a thrilling, dramatic, surreal and hilarious sport.
From Adrian Lewis’ run to a second world title to Phil Taylor’s thirteenth Matchplay title.
And everything in between. The ghoulish Dana curse, floorboardgate and draftgate. All the scandals and weird incidents that have made for an unforgettable year in the world of darts. If you’re a hardcore darts geek, a casual fan or utterly new to chucks and chuckers; Lenny Boyle’s Darts Almanac is an absolutely essential read. And it’s cheap. Very cheap. Did I mention it’s cheap?
Lenny Boyle writes about professional darts for Mirror Sport, and a bunch of other places too.
