About the Author

Duncan Hamilton is also the author of the 2007 William Hill Sports Book of the Year, Provided You Don't Kiss Me: 20 Years with Brian Clough and A Last English Summer: The Biography of a Cricket Season.


'An excellent storyteller, Hamilton looks beyond the dry detail of Bodyline to illuminate its principal perpetrator' The Cricketer. * The Cricketer *

'Wonderful ... Meticulously researched and beautifully written. Please read it.'
Mike Selvey, Guardian.

'Finally Larwood's memory is honoured with the biography it deserves' Independent on Sunday. * Independent on Sunday *
'A near-masterpiece... a magnificently written, intensely moving story of... a great England fast bowler. ... If you want to know why the Ashes matter, you could do worse then lose yourself for a few days in the story of this great and humble man.' Mike Atherton, the Times. * The Times *
This is cricket biography of the highest stamp, fit to compare in recent memory with Gideon Haigh's excavation of the life of Jack Iverson, David Foot's dramatic revisionism on Wally Hammond and Leo McKinstry's remarkably even-handed portrait of Geoff Boycott. Five stars' Wisden Cricketer. * Wisden Cricketer *
