James' carefully crafted book relates his experience as a colonized subject of Britain in the West Indies and the way in which colonialism and British morals and values were spread in the colonies through cricket. Beautifully intertwined with James personal experiences growing up and attending British public school, the history of cricket and great cricketers is presented passionately by James, a true fan of the sport, and all written in beautiful prose. James also tells the narrative of his political life, writing about the importance of West Indian self-governance and how cricket mirrored the social politics of Trinidad at the time. There were many overlaying threads of narrative throughout the book which gave it textural depth and the honesty of James throughout lends weight to his words.
