Cape Summer and the Australians in England PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cape Summer and the Australians in England free pdf Alan Ross (1922-2001) - distinguished poet, travel writer, and editor of "London Magazine" - also managed to excel in the role of cricket correspondent for the "Observer", in which capacity he followed England/MCC on tours of Australia, South Africa and the West Indies. In the book-length accounts he published of these tours, his lifelong love of the game found glorious expression. "Cape Summer and the Australians in England" (1957) treats the 1956 Ashes series, memorable above all for the bowling performance of Jim Laker- and the following winter's MCC tour to apartheid South Africa, where one of England's strongest ever sides had an unexpectedly tough contest and where, as ever, Ross' discerning eye and finessing pen were alive to dimensions of the game beyond the boundary rope.

About Alan Ross

Alan Ross (1922-2001) was a poet, writer, journalist, editor and publisher. In fact, he was a man of letters par excellence. Born in India, educated in England, he joined the Royal Navy in the Second World War and endured the Arctic convoys to Russia. Alan Ross took over The London Magazine (the definite article was later dropped) from John Lehmann and revitalized it. There, it has been said, 'he simplified as well as unified contemporary culture by the clarity of his unique editorial taste. He also discovered many new talents.' His writing embraced poetry, cricket journalism, biography, autobiography, criticism and travel writing. Many of his titles are to be reissued in Faber Finds.
