Summary

Bumble is back! The funny, forthright and not infrequently filthy author of best-seller Start the Car and star of Sky Sports returns with a new collection of yarns from his years at the crease and at the microphone. It’s the book that Bumble’s many fans have been longing for.

After three long years, Bumble is finally back! The outspoken author of best-seller Start the Car returns with a whole new cricket bag full of yarns from his years on the pitch and in the commentary box.

Expect more tales of Bumble’s time rubbing shoulders (and chinking glasses) with the great (as well as not so great) and good (as well as bloody awful) of cricket.

Released alongside England’s home Ashes series, there will be more than a few stories of Bumble’s encounters with the Aussies over the years, but that’s not to say this will be any less rambling, madcap and downright fun than we’ve come to expect, and hope for, from the great David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd.

”Revealing” (The Guardian)

”A paean to cricket and pubs and laddishness and gentle grumpiness” (The Independent)

”For comedy genius, David Lloyd takes the (half) biscuit” (Times Online)

“In this book Lloyd revels in the quirkier and humorous side of cricket, while offering behind-the-scenes action of his years spent following cricket round the globe” (Nottingham Post)

Great stuff

Another, true cricket fan, choice. If you didn’t think much to Bumble for joining Sky, then give it a try anyway. I am so glad I did.
