Advice is strange. We think we possess wisdom, the raw material from which it is made, and our advice is the soundest and best. If you’re unlucky enough to get a perforated bowel, and be... More > hospitalized, and the surgeon says “you’re lucky to be alive” it certainly changes your perspective on how urgent it is to pass on the torch. This was the position Steve found himself in during summer 2010. What would have happened to his knowledge of cricket? It would be a shame if it were lost for ever. Then, one of the many long tedious days during that frustrating, wasted summer, Steve’s little nephew asked him to “explain cricket”. Explaining cricket proved to be more difficult than it seemed. You can’t explain the present without history. And history has a way of veering off into explanations of why Uncle is now sitting in a wheelchair, when once he climbed mountains. Which involves change, and the watercourse way of Zen. Suddenly, we’re a long way from the forward defensive stroke … or are we?< Less

Steve Rudd was born in Hull, East Yorkshire, in 1955, completely naked, unable to walk, talk, or fend for himself. His chief poetic claim to fame is that he once served Philip Larkin in a bookshop.... More > Unfortunately for both parties at the time, he mistook the great man for Eric Morecambe. He lives in West Yorkshire with a wife, a cat, and a variable number of dogs, but not necessarily in that order. His hobbies include annoying people, lying under the table with an empty can of Special Brew (which is, in itself, a form of prayer) thinking about Abraham Lincoln’s hat, and having staring contests with the linoleum. In common with many other misguided adolescents, he began writing poetry while still at school. Fortunately for mankind, all of this early work has been lost. Albion is his third poetry collection, and, like the other two, will probably appeal most strongly to people who have a table with one leg 0.33cm shorter than the other three.< Less
