An event with

Mike Brearley

On Cricket


Thursday 11th July 2019 at 6:30pm  |  Daunt Books Hampstead


Mike Brearley was one of the England cricket team’s greatest ever leaders, losing only four of his 39 Test matches as captain in an era when both Australia and the West Indies were terrifyingly good, and drawing a rare level of consistency from mercurial talents such as David Gower and Ian Botham. After retiring from the sport, he built a second career as a highly respected psychoanalyst. On Cricket, his new collection of essays, sees Brearley reflecting on a range of subjects, from the influence of his Yorkshire father and the impact of his cricketing heroes, to the intersection of race and cricket and the legacy of CLR James. Mike will be chatting about the book with Stephen Fay, author of Arlott, Swanton and the Soul of English Cricket
