Duncan Hamilton's biography of Neville Cardus, The Great Romantic, became a bestseller in 2019 even before it won the William Hill. But to really appreciate why he was the greatest cricket writer of all you need a companion one-volume collection of his best work. This A Field of Tents and Waving Colours perfectly provides.
Acclaimed in hardback, and now available in paperback at the height of the summer, here is a book for every lover of fine writing on the Summer Game. Here is Cardus on Bradman, Trumper, Compton and Benaud, at Roses matches and seeing the Australians defeated at Eastbourne - and of course at Lord's.
