David Donald is a 12-year-old boy with an amazing bowling arm. He’s a spinner who becomes the stuff of legend. His guardian, Uncle Michael, is also a spinner – a great Australian bullshit artist, a shyster and mythmaker.

It’s between the wars. It’s the glory days of cricket. Together, David and Michael will rout the English and reveal more than a little about the shaping of the Australian psyche.

‘Even if you don’t like cricket and you’re not sure if this book will appeal to you – stick with me here. I don’t care for the game, yet this book has managed to find a cosy little spot in my heart.’ Australian Women Online
