The Picador Book Of Cricket
A tribute to the finest writers on the game of cricket, acknowledging that the great days of cricket literature are in the past. There was a time when major English writers - P.G. Wodehouse, Arthur Conan Doyle, Alec Waugh - took time off to write about cricket, whereas the cricket book market today is dominated by ghosted autobiographies and statistical compendiums. "The Picador Book of Cricket" celebrates the best writing on the game and includes many pieces that have been either out of print or difficult to get hold of for years. Including many Neville Cardus, C.L.R. James, Jon Arlot, V.S. Haipaul, C.B. Fry this anthology should be of interest to any cricket follower or anyone interested in sports writing.
