Description

What follows, which explores some of the charms, the quirks and the peculiar allure of cricket from a variety of perspectives, is not intended as a memorial for long-lost sepia days.

The game is still alive. Whether it turns out to be therapy for me or entertainment for you remains to be seen.

To achieve both would be a bonus. From Somerset stalwart to acclaimed writer and broadcaster, Vic Marks has lived a life steeped in cricket.

In Late Cuts he takes us beyond the boundary rope, sharing the parts of the game fans don’t get to see, from the food served at lunchtime (then – sweaty ham; now – quinoa, cranberry and feta salad) to the politics of the dressing room. Whether revisiting his playing days to reveal the secrets of bowling a killer spell and what it feels like to be heckled by a riled-up crowd, or ruminating on the current state of the game (don’t mention The Hundred!), this amusing and insightful collection will delight all cricket lovers.
