24 for 3
Do cricketers blush? What happens if the ball hits a seagull? Can a woman have a lover and a husband and still keep her family together? Can the rules be changed?
Friday: as a Test match between England and India begins, a woman's attention is torn between a husband who is all too keen to explain the rules, a lover who prefers mystery, and a sixteen-year-old son who hasn't come home. By Tuesday night the match will have been won or lost. Or perhaps it will have reached a draw in which only pride may be salvaged?
24 for 3is a perfectly crafted, funny and moving masterpiece about love, family, passion and whether or not one should play by the rules.
