Following On: A Memoir of Teenage Obsession and Terrible Cricket
Teenager Emma gets interested/obsessed with cricket in the early 90s and becomes a keen follower of the England cricket team, lead by Mike Atherton, during a pretty dismal period for English cricket. She looks back on her supporter years and decides to go and interview as many of that team as she can to see if she can discover why she became so obsessed.
Nicely written, some entertaining anecdotes and a big overlap with my period of following (some of) the Test cricket. Good fun. I think Richard would quite like this one.
