A Thirst for Life Summary

A Thirst for Life: With The Accent on Cricket by Henry Blofeld

With his trademark bow-tie, his distinctive rich, plummy voice and his vividly eccentric observations Henry Blofeld is one of Britain's prized exports. He has been close to the heart of the game for over forty years. As a leading commentator on Test Match Special and cricket writer, at home and abroad, he has informed and entertained wide audiences with his extensive knowledge and perception of cricket at the very highest level. Last year Henry Blofeld was forced by major heart surgery to take stock of his life. And here it is in this fine and illuminating autobiography, full of sharp pictures and vivid memories, a few sad, and many hilariously funny.

No shortage here of shrewd comment and fascinating in-pavilion gosip * Sunday Telegraph *
An elegant journey from the playing fields of Eton in the 1950s...into the muddy waters of today's match fixing allegations * Independent on Sunday *
