About This Item

London: H. F. & G. Witherby, 1992. Hardback in Dust Wrapper.. Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.. First edition (first printing). Hardback in dust wrapper (blue boards with gilt titling to the spine) Physically 9¼” x 6¼” (0.8 kg); 224pp; Index; Contains: Black & white photographs; In his new biography, Tennant traces in detail Gooch’s twenty-year career, from its erratic beginnings through his signing for the 1982 South African tour – and subsequent three-year Test ban – to his heroic exploits as batsman and captain of Essex and England. Drawing on his personal knowledge of Gooch and the comments of numerous friends and colleagues, Tennant also considers the paradoxes in his personality. At times stubborn and perverse, Gooch, by his own admission, appears ‘a miserable sod’ on television but, as Tennant reveals, the dour, unsmiling image is far from the whole picture. A colourful and penetrating account of a peculiarly British sporting hero.

About BookLovers of Bath

BookLovers of Bath is set in the pastoral idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God’s Own Country) in the south west of England. My wife and I owned the village Post Office until the modern world caught up with us in 2014. At that point I converted the premises to a small book shop, Fact or Fable, with a stock of around 4,000 titles in stock. I’ve been selling books worldwide since 1997 and rather hope to get the hang of it shortly…
