A classic in Australian cricket writing - Arthur Mailey's wry and engaging autobiography - now back in print.

Arthur Mailey's classic autobiography, first published in 1958, is a wry and engaging account by a talented cricketer from a very different era - full of zest, varied, quick, shifting the point of attack, sometimes extravagant, frequently brilliant and always thoughtful.

For fifty years, Arthur Mailey played and watched first-class cricket. During his Test career he played against many of the greats, and on one notable occasion dismissed his idol, Victor Trumper, to his immediate regret: 'I felt like a boy who had killed a dove.'

10 for 66 and All That is a reminder of the glory days of cricket - amateurs and professionals, Bradman, Noble and Trumper batting, and Barnes, O'Reilly and Fleetwood-Smith with the ball.
