An Anthology of New Writing
Publication Date: October 12, 1989
Cricket has always attracted fine writing and in this slim volume of tenth – five previously unpublished pieces contains some shining examples. Within these pages Simon has assembled a veritable galaxy of talent, from the delicate wit of P.G Wodehouse’s ‘How’s That, Jeeves?’ to the epic prose of J.R.R.Tolkein’s ‘The Tale of Gatti the Dwarf and Lubo the Elf’. William Shakespeare joins Hunter. S. Thompson in this entertaining anthology.
All these very different writers are are united by their love of cricket. Admirers of fine writing and cricket aficionados alike will find much to delight them in the pages that follow.
