Cricket, with a hilarious spin!
on 22 February 2011
Who knew there was so much cricket enthusiasm in Eastern Europe!? Bell's writing is funny throughout, and full of stories on the fascinating people he meets. This is a great book if you want a fresh, funny perspective on countries like The Ukraine, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia and Estonia. His mission is simple: to explore the European cricket underworld, and all its eccentricities, taking a Skoda from The UK to Istanbul and back. An amazing journey, with such interesting stories. Mafia, spies, fingerless terrorists! Priceless.
