It has been an Evening Standard London bestseller, garnered wonderful reviews, and Mick Jagger is a fan. Extremely charismatic and promotable author, who has written this under a pseudonym: the story of how the book was published should attract attention. For readers of On Chesil Beach, The Hours and On Beauty.

'24 for 3 contains some of the tightest, cleanest writing I have seen in a long time ... This is a little marvel. It's funny, clever, illuminating, deeply kind-hearted and it doesn't overstay its welcome. It's not self-indulgent: things happen in it, surprising things, like in an old-fashioned novel, yet it's perfectly contemporary; and every word has been chosen with subtle care.' Nicholas Lezard, Guardian 'A gem' Salley Vickers 'Very original ... I loved it' Mick Jagger 'A lovely little novel ... 24 for 3 is written with beguiling simplicity, and the small wisdoms it offers up are readily accessible to readers who have never been able to make head or tail of cricket' Lionel Shriver, Daily Telegraph
