Geoffrey Boycott: The Corridor of Certainty [2014, Signed by the Author]

£14.99

Product description

Published in 2014 by Simon & Schuster. Includes a section of photographs.

Signed by Geoffrey Boycott on the title page, with a message to a former owner of the book.

Twelve years ago, Geoffrey Boycott received the diagnosis that tore his world apart: he had cancer of the tongue. Having faced down the fastest bowlers during his career as one of England's greatest-ever batsmen, he now had to take on an even more daunting foe.

In this fascinating new book, his first autobiographical work for more than 15 years, Boycott not only relives his terrifying battle with cancer but also opens up about the personal side of his life as never before, writing movingly about his long-time love Rachael, and their daughter Emma. He talks about his many other interests and friendships beyond cricket.

Boycott has devoted his life to cricket, and his insights on the game, its players and those who write and talk about it are never less than frank, revealing, entertaining and very honest. A compelling and entertaining read.

Light creasing and rubbing to the top and bottom edges of the unclipped dust jacket. Clean and crisp throughout with a tight binding.
