The Instant Cricket Library
An imagined anthology
by Dan Liebke
Excerpts from unpublished, imaginary and other hard-to-find cricket books
Congratulations on your correct decision to purchase a copy of my book. You are an individual of sound economic judgement and I salute you.
Here are all the different ways you can get hold of a copy. Choose as many as you like.
Go to a good book store. It really is that simple.
If the book's not there, you're not in a good book store.
It's a comedy cricket book, in which you’ll find excerpts from a number of remarkable cricket books, none of which you’ve ever read before because they never actually existed. There’s I, Pad, Shane Watson’s infamous manifesto arguing that the LBW Law should be abolished. There’s Out of My Ed, in which you’ll discover the truth about the real Ed Cowan. There’s a Banner-Man comic book, a Mitch Marsh play, and much more. They’re all part of The Instant Cricket Library.
The book runs the full gamut of parodies:
It’s also got some magnificent illustrations in there that make the book sing (not literally).
It’s an entire cricket library in one book! You need never buy another cricket book again. Talk about value for money.
