Andrew Murtagh’s biography of Barry Richards arrives in paperback just as his new book gets its first, near-perfect, review.
You can read what the critics said about Sundial in the Shade below; meanwhile, CricketWeb have just given his new biography of another former teammate, fast bowler and Test umpire John Holder, a near-perfect review:
“Thoroughly entertaining. Murtagh & Holder are a fine double act, who take it in turns to play the straight man and they produce an absorbing account of what life was like as a county cricketer a couple of generations ago. It is one long stream of anecdotes, all of which are very well told. Test of Character is a superb book that I wholeheartedly recommend.”
