Kepler. The Biography

by Griffiths, Edward

Condition: See description

(Johannesburg: Pelham Books, 1994) 0720720451. Signed by Kepler Wessels on the front free endpaper. 8vo; original green boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xi + (i) + 348, incl. index; plates in monochrome and full colour. Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed; slight bump to top fore-corner of upper board; gift inscription to front free endpaper, plus inscription by Kepler Wessels; edges a little browned. Very good condition. "Throughout, he has endured as much criticism as praise but in times and places when lesser men would have walked away, Wessels has stood his ground, gutsed it out ... and prevailed. The game of cricket has been played by many batsmen with more natural talent, by many who have provided greater excitement and by many with more flair, but by very few as brave. Why spend a year writing a biography of such a capable but unflamboyant cricketer? Because, through the story of his career, Wessels proves an eternal truth: that no matter how dark the night, no matter how great the obstacle, guts can carry you through. Even if you don't tell jokes." .
