Lost in the Long Grass Summary


The former Sussex cricket captain John Barclay offers 24 written sketches on characters he has known in the world of cricket. With his customary charm and self-deprecating humour he reflects on a range of subjects: Colin Cowdrey, Mike Atherton, Ray Illingworth, Tony Greig, Mike Brearley, Imran Khan, Derek Underwood, Jack Russell, Peter Roebuck, David Lloyd and many more, including a groundsman, a quartet of cricket writers, an umpire and finally his dog Robert. In his foreword John Woodcock writes: "These are not cricket prints of the kind which the great RC Robertson-Glasgow ('Crusoe') did so brilliantly. They are longer and less flamboyant than that; but they come from the same spring, refreshed by a love of the game and a wish to see the best in those who play it. His author's eye for human nature, informed by his cricket experience and access to privilege, probably misses a good deal less than his subjects might have suspected."
