From the cover: “A cricket autobiography that reads like a novel is a rare treat, but then, as Tony Lewis says, he fluttered into the golden web of Neville Cardus at the age of twelve and never tried to escape. His Playing Days have been unusual, to say the least. A double Cambridge Blue thinking of a future as a professional violinist, he bequeathed his front teeth to a rugby pitch at nineteen, and rose through the ranks of cricket to captain Glamorgan and England with romantic optimism. He had played for his county as a schoolboy prodigy — Welsh, fiercely determined and out first ball — and he maintained his independence as an amateur and a gentleman by his skills as a freelance writer and broadcaster. Top scorer in the country in 1966, Tony Lewis nevertheless viewed the game from above and below, suffering dismal slumps and tormented by knee injuries, a thinking young man surrounded by gods. Here are his memories of Glamorgan: of leading them to their Championship triumph in 1969, and of the black day when Roger Davis, felled at short square leg, lay apparently lifeless on the pitch. Memories of skippering the MCC as a novitiate in his new England sweater in India and Pakistan in 1972/3: of the shocking poverty, the blinding sun, the dodgy umpiring and the death threat by the Black September movement just months after the Munich Olympics. Memories of music, of Wales, the RAF, playing for the Lord’s Taverners and I Zingari, and the treasured characters of the game, all vividly captured with the writer’s eye for feeling and detail. Like the sight of A. R. Lewis winding up to take 3 for 18 at Neath with his little leg spinners, Playing Days will delight cricket-lovers everywhere with its poetic charm.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Unimagined: A Muslim Boy Meets the West by Imran Ahmad (£9.50)Publisher: Aurum Press — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1845132289]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “Part White Teeth, part Adrian Mole, Unimagined is the captivating memoir of a Muslim boy born in Pakistan, who moves to London aged one and grows up torn between his Islamic identity and his desire to embrace the West. The endearing narrator recalls his childhood in a series of vivid snapshots: outrage as deserved victory is snatched away from him in the Karachi Bonnie Baby contest; bitterness as he is tricked out of his collection of Tarzan bubble-gum cards by junior con artists; the heady taste of success in the Metropolitan Police schools quiz; joy at passing the entrance exam to the local grammar school; uncertainty as he seeks to become a doctor (like all good Asian boys); and shock at experiencing racist abuse from pupils, neighbours and strangers. Imran’s response is a determined quest to become the quintessential English gentleman: tie perfectly knotted, shirt pristinely ironed, hair neatly combed. Like most boys, he has a parallel obsession with cars and girls: he yearns to emulate his hero, Simon Templar in The Saint, by driving off into the distance in a Jaguar XJS and encountering danger, adventure — and a vivacious young woman (preferably brunette, but any kind considered)..”Notes: Size: 8" x 5¼".
