Book Description

In this wide-ranging and beautifully-produced anthology, Test Match Special's Jonathan 'Aggers' Agnew, chooses a wide variety of writings on the sport that has consumed his life. In a series of carefully considered reflections, he examines the importance of their contribution to our understanding and appreciation of cricket. While not shying away from controversy, the anthology always has a sense of fun and humour lurking just below the surface. Humour and cricket are forever intertwined, as it is with courage, long hot summers, school days, patriotism, literature, best-of-journalism and eccentricity.
