The quintessentially English cricket commentator, writer, oenophile, bon viveur, collector, and national treasure, fondly known as "Blowers", tells his colourful life story.
Born in Norfolk and educated at Eton and Cambridge, Henry Calthorpe Blofeld OBE, nicknamed "Blowers" by the late Brian Johnston, is best known as a cricket commentator for Test Match Special on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra. His distinctively rich, cut-glass voice and his vividly eccentric observations of life on and off the pitch, have made him a household name, not only in Britain but around the world, wherever cricket is played. Blowers has been close to the heart of the game for over 50 years and his career has taken him to the far corners of the Earth.
This autobiography, stuffed to the gunwhales with delicious anecdotes, brings his astonishingly colourful story bang up to date.

Most entertaining orange juice ever !
Yes definitely - to hear it in Blower`s wonderful voice is a must.
The wonderfully descriptive nature to the stories much like his cricket commentary.
Love his very accurate take on Johnners.
A Vintage Innings.
Excellent stuff from an ex public schoolboy
He is an unashamed snob - got to read it!
Lots of fascinating facts - second only to Johnners.
The Long Room And All That.
A smashing read from a snob of the highest level - from a privileged background comes a plethora of stories. This guy didn't have to try hard - he is a successful and funny snob of the Eton variety.
