If you’re looking at the title of this blog article and thinking, “Oh, I don’t remember that happening!” you’re probably in the same boat as the person at our local Oxfam book shop who put the book in the biographies section. It’s not a true story, but a highly amusing novel from 1975.
How had I managed to miss this? It’s got sport and humour and lots of sly digs at the media and other targets. If you want to slip back in time 40 years, and have a smile while you’re at it, I’d thoroughly recommend this gem of a book.
