Simply the best book I've read for years.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fatty Batter: How Cricket Saved My Life (then Ruined It) (Paperback)
I bought this book as a holiday gift for my cricket-loving, non-reading husband. When it arrived I flicked through the pages, started reading a passing paragraph and was hooked. Michael Simkins writes with wit, style and ease. He evokes with humour and considerable accuracy the frustrations and angst of the corpulent child becoming the tireless team organiser and devoted cricket fan. It's a joy to read for all cricket enthusiasts and their long-suffering partners.
