In this edition of the podcast, Duncan joins James Buttler to talk about his new book 'One Long and Beautiful Summer - A Short Elogy for Red-Ball Cricket'. As expected the winner of William Hill Sports Book of the Year Pries and two British Sports Book Awards nails his latest masterpiece.

V: Book Review: Duncan Hamilton, One Long and Beautiful Summer: A Short Elegy for Red-Ball Cricket

Read more
One of Duncan Hamilton's favourite writers on cricket, Edmund Blunden, wrote how he felt going to watch a game: 'You arrive early, earlier even than you meant . . . and you feel a little guilty at the thought of the day you propose to give up to sheer luxury'.
In 2019, Hamilton became convinced that the therapeutic “slow trot” of cricket’s sparsely attended but charmingly nuanced county championship was at the point of unwelcome change, with the new white-ball competition the Hundred about to trample all over it. So to capture the quirky, kind and stoic people who characterise this receding community, he spent last season luxuriating in cricket at Sookholme in Nottinghamshire, Clifton Park in Yorkshire and Hove’s county ground in Sussex. Hamilton admits to “nostalgically summoning ghosts”, but with no cricket at all at the moment, his work makes for a welcome substitute, for all those nostalgic.

Along with Annie Chave, the discussion also covers Hamilton’s life and work, including ‘Kings of Summer’ a treasure of a book that takes us back to the final game of the glorious 2016 County Cricket season, when Middlesex met Yorkshire at Lords, Somerset waiting in the wings should the match end in a draw.
Through Duncan’s Hamilton, the spirit of Neville Cardus is ever present.
