Publisher's Summary

Henry Blofeld is one of the greatest characters in cricket. For nearly thirty years his distinctive rich, plummy voice and his famous expression 'My dear old thing!' have delighted the millions of listeners to BBC Radio's Test Match Special.

In his entertaining one-man show An Evening with Blowers, Henry takes his audience on a hilarious journey from his eccentric childhood in Norfolk to his schooldays as a prolific batsman at Eton and his successful career as an international cricket writer and broadcaster. He tells many colourful anecdotes about the game of cricket and his BBC colleagues including John Arlott and Brian Johnston and reveals what really happened when the Queen presented the TMS team with a special cake!

    "Good old thing "

    One of the most entertaining characters in cricket today is Henry Blofeld. He has a wealth of cricketing knowledge and gives the impression of being a "bit" absent minded, the reason for this is explained in this talk. He also confesses why he calls people "old thing " and " my dear old thing ". A fantastic evening with Blowers a positive suggestion to read.

    "Even better than I'd hoped"

    Blowers on splendid form, genuinely witty and warm. I'd hesitated a bit over getting it but think this'll be something I listen to plenty of time over the years.
    Very glad I bought it.

    I'd love to hear his auto biography A Thirst for Life: With the Accent on Cricket (or even something more recent) on Audible.
