It's Always Summer Somewhere: A Matter of Life and Cricket: One man's quest to come to terms with his cricket addiction (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Felix White is the cricket's flag waver. His passion for the game is at the fore on the BBC's number one cricket podcast and 5Live show, Tailenders, which he co-presents with Greg James and Jimmy Anderson. The Marks to Prove It is Felix's funny, heart-breaking and endless engaging love letter to the game of Cricket.

Felix looks back at the last 20 years of the sport and unpacks the most poignant moments; both cultural touchstones for the game and unflinching personal events. He relives each, telling us how and what it taught him about life. In a fact-finding field trip in the name of catharsis, White hunts down the main players in said memory and hears about their own personal experience and recollections.

The Marks to Prove It is an incredibly honest detail of a life lived with cricket. It offers a sense of genuine empathy and understanding not just with cricket fans, but sports or music fans across the world, in exploring our reasons for pouring so much of the meaning of life into a game that we simply cannot control. Culminating in the heart-stopping World Cup Final in 2019, the book finally answers that question fans have so often asked - what is it about this game we love so much?
