"Everyone who enjoys good prose or sport, and particularly both together, knows the name of Bernard Darwin whose chronicles of golf and Fourth Leaders in 'The Times' have for so many years been an almost indispensable part of life to many people. In this book Mr. Darwin tries his hand for the first time at the long essay, covering a diversity of topics in life and literature in the same easy, original way, seeing the meaning behind familiar things and expressing them in his exquisitely right and simple style. The topics range from a collection of toy soldiers in childhood, through titanic matches in sport to the cosy contemplation of his sporting prints by his fireside, and all alike evoke a rich and human world."
