From the cover: “J. M. Barrie, playwright and novelist, had a lifelong love affair with cricket. The author traces the creator of Peter Pan’s obsession with cricket from his boyhood in Kirriemuir through his days as a journalist in Nottingham and London, from whence are produced Barrie’s articles on the game that have lain forgotten for a hundred years, to the many references in his work as a mature writer. It is said that lovers of cricket have never really wanted to grow up: nor did Barrie. Those who enjoy both will relish this book.”
