Picador Book of Cricket

Author(s): Ramachandra Guha (ed)


This volume celebrates the best writing on the game and includes many pieces that have been out of print, or difficult to get hold of, for years. It is also truly international in its selection. The older cricketing nations such as England and Australia are well represented here. But so are the countries where the game is followed with the greatest passion - India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and, above all, the West Indies. There are even pieces on a Fijian batsman and an American fast bowler. The book's gallery of great writers includes Neville Cardus, C L R James, John Arlott, V S Naipaul, J B Priestly, Jack Fingleton and C B Fry. This definitive anthology is a must for any cricket follower or anyone interested in sports writing elevated to high art. Paperback (B-Format)
