English cricket fans will love Jarrod Kimber's second Ashes book "Australian Autopsy." Using his own unique brand of dry humor, this Australian author tells the story of the events of the winter 2010-2011 series and England's record breaking 3-1 victory in Australia. Kimber travels around his homeland staying in flea-bitten motels, getting whispered at by Cricket Australia officials, and bonding in a beautiful bromance with fellow cricket writer Sam Collins. When his book isn't chronicling his dreams about Alastair Cook, it is watching England cut deep into the Australian cricket system.
About the Author
Jarrod Kimber was born and bred in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne to a family of cricket fundamentalists. Cricket was a huge part of his upbringing, much more so than schooling and it was suggested he leave high school. Over the years he worked for a cult, an airline and then became a filmmaker. Bored with endless conversations about Cronenberg, Lynch and Mise-en-scene he started a blog about cricket. This blog was cricketwithballs.com and it became so big he realised he could actually get paid to write about cricket so he made his way to England in 2008 to live the hedonistic life of a cricketer writer. He has seen cricket on three continents, backpacked his way around the World Cup in 2003, and once accidentally woke up Adam Gilchrist on a plane. He resides in South London, owns no cats, and during the 2009 cricket season he averaged 35 with his Hawk bat and 21 with the ball from 12 matches. He will continue to write about cricket, but is also working on a screenplay called Godzilla Vs The Zombies.
