Skirting the boundary: Isabelle Duncan A History of Women’s cricket

Ok I finally finished it. It’s taken an age but I’ve done. There has been a variety of factors – teething, having to read another book for the pod & Christmas but its done now.

As a social history of women’s cricket this is pretty good – the international stuff in particular. The bit that dragged was ‘England home & away’ which covered in brief every match England ladies have played – since the twenties! There was neither the depth to really enjoy or the brevity to race through.

I am glad I read the book but conclude its more use as a reference than enjoyable as a read.

BUT the image of English lady crickets cruising to Australia in the 30s in a whirl of colonial cocktail parties & day trips has given me an idea. They’d make an excellent hook for a Call of Cthulhu party !
