9780091943134: Fibber in the Heat

** Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award **

Fanatical about cricket since he was a boy, Miles Jupp would do anything to see his heroes play. But perhaps deciding to bluff his way into the press corps during England's Test series in India wasn't his best idea.

By claiming to be the cricket correspondent for BBC Scotland and getting a job with the (Welsh) Western Mail, Miles lands the press pass that will surely be the ticket to his dreams. Soon, he finds himself in cricket heaven - drinking with David Gower and Beefy, sharing bar room banter with Nasser Hussain and swapping diarrhoea stories with the Test Match Special team.

But struggling in the heat under the burden of his own fibs, reality soon catches up with Miles as he bumbles from one disaster to the next. A joyous, charming, yet cautionary tale, Fibber in the Heat is for anyone who's ever dreamt about doing nothing but watching cricket all day long.

Review:

"Crisply funny... Jupp is a genteel treat" ( Guardian)

"'[I]t's a tale of slavish fandom, the highs and lows of which are illustrated with dexterity... It's not only cricket fans and journalists who'll appreciate this yarn - it's a tale for lovers in the wider sense, and of the boundaries they'll cross" ( Independent)

"Jupp is intelligent, charismatic and one of the most established raconteurs around" ( Time Out)

"His tribute to the simple pleasures of fandom is a touching one" ( Guardian)

"A very funny book about a very silly plan" (Jonathan Agnew)

Book Description:

Cricket obsessive Miles Jupp hatches an ill-conceived plan to join the England cricket team in India
