The autobiography of cricket broadcasting legend Henry Blofeld.
Henry Blofeld's voice is the sound of the summer to thousands of cricket lovers all over the world, and this autobiographical book is a celebration of his career commentating on the sport he loves.
Henry has been a summariser on Test Match Special for over 40 years, and cricket fans all over the world adore him. In this book he relives his favourite moments in the sport and shares behind-the-scenes anecdotes and stories told in his unique style.
Having listened to squeeze the orange - Henry Blofeld’s biography I wondered if his new book would hold anything new about his like in cricket or simply be a rehash of classic but told before tales. I plumped to listen just to hear that extraordinary voice once more and was so glad I did. Not only are 5he tales told in a way only he could tell them, there were so many new or enhanced stories that I need not have worried before my purchase. Filled with fun, facts and fantastic insights into not just his own but many other colourful cricket loving characters you really feel like you have been a companion in the commentary box for the last 50 years with the great man. I cannot recommend this as a worthy successor to squeeze the orange highly enough. Buy it and you will be entertained for hours!
