Wonderful elegy to a game that, way more than any other, defines our shared identity . . . a timely reminder of what is missing from our lives in cricket's absence -- Jim White * The Oldie * It would perhaps be a mistake to regard this as purely a cricket book. Each excursion to a cricket ground is preceded and accompanied by extensive digressions elsewhere. But the digressions are not wandering from the point, but carefully crafted scene-setting as Henderson provides the social, artistic and historical context for the cricket he witnesses. Rather than purely a cricket book, this is an elegy for a vanishing world with cricket as its framework -- Richard Lawrence * The Journal of the Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians * Erudite . . . genuinely beautiful * Wisden Cricket Monthly *.
