Neville Cardus was a literary writer whose subject happened to be cricket, and here is a representative selection of the best of Cardus’s writing on the sport. Included are the imaginative reconstruction of the 1882 England and Australia test match to Cardus’s descriptions of village cricket, accounts of the great players that Cardus watched play (from Donald Bradman and Harold Larwood to Wally Hammond) to examples of his ‘Shastbury’ writings.
“For any person, irrelevant whether he knows a thing about cricket or not, this book will remain a treasure. A must buy for any cricket fanatic and a must read for any lover of fine writing.”
