Publisher's Summary

The Nightwatchman contains the very best of cricket writing from all over the world, produced in association with Wisden. It gathers together leading cricket journalists and well-known writers from other disciplines - mathematics, poetry, history and literature, to name but a few - to offer long-form original pieces about all aspects of cricket.

The Nightwatchman provides writers from the Test-playing nations and beyond with the rare opportunity of choosing their subjects and their styles and writing to lengths they feel appropriate, away from the usual constraints of other formats. It aims to ensure that the tradition of high-quality cricket writing is continued and to make that writing accessible from anywhere in the world.

Listeners will find a fantastic variety of voices and a real breadth of viewpoints - some contemporary, some historical, some thought-provoking, some tongue firmly planted in cheek - but all in keeping with the Wisden traditions of excellent writing and a love of the game.

    Story
    "The Night watchman sent me to sleep."
    What disappointed you about The Best of the Nightwatchman?

    I didn't find many of the stories interesting. Guess cricket isn't my favourite sport.


    What will your next listen be?

    Maybe The ashes According To Bumble or 1 of the humourous cricket books I have.


    What about David Thorpe’s performance did you like?

    I thought he read the book well.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It wasn't the worst I've heard.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't sure what this book was about before listening to it and I can't say I was blown away by it.
