For anyone interested in late Victorian / Edwardian literature this is a facinating account which shows links between fun and games, in the form of cricket, and so many noted authors, A.A Milne, Conan Doyle, P.G.Wodehouse, Jerome K.Jerome, E.V.Lucas, Denis Mackail, and E.W.Hornung, the creator Raffles to name a few. All these are seen against the events and politics of the time. Baden-Powel for instance, very much a man of the moment, was apparently facinated by Peter Pan.

You do not have to be a cricket fanatic to enjoy this book although it would certainly help. As a village cricketer but no fanatic what I enjoyed was the depiction of a stratum of English society which has vanished; or does it sill exist in some remote country houses? The characters too are quite extraordinary; Barrie himself, Conan Doyle, Aubrey Smith, W.G.Grace etc. Full marks to Kevin Telfer for making this account so interesting and unusual.
