A Breathless Hush... Reviews


"'A rich bespoke treasury of cricket poetry...a sumptuous Semprini selection: old ones, new ones, loved ones, neglected ones' Spectator 'An excellent present for the cricket lover who has everything - and extremely useful for all those moments when rain stops play' Best of British 'No other sport lends itself so lyrically, lovingly, and occasionally ludicrously, to this game of ritual and contemplation. All the moods are captured here, from the pastoral, intellectual and romantic to the comic...This is a book full of pleasures and surprises.' Western Daily Press"
