Better than I expected,
This review is from: Fibber in the Heat (Paperback)
I was a little wary of this book as the whole "blagging a press pass" set-up seemed rather artificial. But I really enjoyed it and laughed out loud in several places. Miles Jupp tells a good story, as you might expect from a stand-up comedian, and is an amusing innocent abroad in the world of sporting journalism, although I did find him implausibly naive about what the day-to-day life of a cricket journalist would involve.
Cricket fans may be intrigued to discover which cricket journalists were friendly towards a newbie on tour and which were beastly to him (the beastly ones are anonymised but I reckon I identified a couple of them). Sadly missing is anything about which journalists rumbled Miles's masquerade. It would have made an entertaining epilogue.
