"Everything James has done has had the mark of originality, of his own flexible, sensitive, and deeply cultured intelligence. He conveys not a rigid doctrine but a delight and curiosity in all the manifestions of life, and the clue to everything lies in his proper appreciation of the game of cricket."—E. P. Thompson
