Product Description

Review

An enchanting voyage through the cricket history of the last half-century, capturing vignettes from voices now silenced. Beautifully written. Fans of the game of any vintage will surely treasure it. -- Andrew Baker, Daily Telegraph

Glimpses of the past, before Twenty20 had been dreamt of, told with wit and 20/20 vision.
-- Simon Redfern, Independent on Sunday

High on idiosyncrasy and local colour, Chalke's portrait is never sentimental, and some of his glances at the
forelock-tugging world of the old-style professional game can still take the breath away. -- DJ Taylor, The Wisden Cricketer

Format: Hardcover
Stephen Chalke is a genius. This book - like his others - is an elegaic piece of wonderful nostalgia about a lost time. So many stories, so well told. The interviews are precious time-capsules, as many of the subjects are now sadly dead. County cricketers - what wonderful, different, ageless people!
