Fatty Batter is the story of one man's lifelong obsession with cricket. From his earliest awkward days as a fat schoolboy, to his years running a team of dysfunctional inadequates, cricket has offered Michael Simkins a shelter from life's irksome realities and a place in which to quietly dream. That place is a peculiarly English arcadia of occasional wondrous beauty, forests of comforting statistics, and the endless life-affirming rituals of defeat, humiliation, and disappointment - the perfect net practise for life.



"At last, the work of genius that will finally bring the long-suffering cricket addict a measure of understanding in the world." ( Sir Tim Rice)
"I cannot recall a funnier or more truthful description of how cricket addiction takes hold." ( Spectator)
"An entertaining example of the Nick Hornby fat-lad-chosen-last-for-the-football-team genre of autobiography." ( Sunday Times)
