'A big-hearted novel with character.' Sunday Telegraph The bestselling debut novel from the author of A MAN'S GOT TO HAVE A HOBBY. Chris Andersen loves cricket. He may not be a legend like Bradman or Boonie, but in the Yarraville West Fourths, Chris Andersen is king. He is the captain, the coach, the manager and, thankfully, a player. They are getting hard to find, players. Every Saturday in summer Chris ropes together a motley team of men and a couple of boys to turn up in their cricket whites to try to win a game. Everyone has a different reason for being there: to hear the music from a nearby house, to block out the memories of another place, to be entertained, to please their dad, or just to have a go. And everyone has a story to tell. One of Australia's best loved writers, William McInnes makes us laugh, cry and grab life with both hands.
