5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a Cricket Book, 3 Nov 2009
This review is from: One More Run: Gloucestershire Versus Yorkshire, Cheltenham 1957 (Paperback)
I should declare that I am a massive fan of anything written by Stephen Chalke, his wonderful Caught in the Memory and Runs in the Memory being two of my favourite cricket reads!
However, this eclipses both, a wonderfully entertaining look back at a larger than life character and the day to life of a county cricketer in the mid/late fifties.
He also takes us back to a slower, and in many respects better and happier time when life seemed somewhat simpler
Chalke is able to elicit detail, humour, passion and a little sadness from his subject during conversations at hte Cheltenham ground.
Five stars does not do this book justice, but then yuou coudl easily say that about other Stephen Chalke books, a must read for the cricket fan

£ 5 for this book? An absolute steal. A lovely book, beautifully written. If you are a cricket fan then buy one of the remaining copies.

Having known "Bomber" for some time I enjoyed the book just as I did his company.
You can hear his voice through the various passages.
