What I am reading.


I occasionally review books I have read on here.

 I am currently reading "All the King's Men" by Denis Brien.

This book is written by local South Australian cricket identity Denis Brien.(Rocka)

It is about the History of the Hindmarsh Cricket Club from 1857 to 1897.

It became the West Torrens Cricket Club where I used to play cricket.

Denis is a long time player and servant of the club and a great local historian.

If you like cricket ,especially with a South  Australian flavour, you should buy the book.

Here is something from the club newsletter.

Some of the King's Men. Rocka is on your far right with cap and sunglasses.

    Jack Pollard Trophy, for the best cricket book written and published in Australia for the 2017 - 2018 Financial Year.

    All The Kings’ Men was considered the best.
