We doff our cap to Harry Pearson, who last night in the splendid surroundings of the Long Room at Lord’s won the Cricket Society / MCC Book of the Year award for his wonderful biography of pioneering West Indian cricketer Learie Constantine.
Harry is now in a very select group of two-time winners of this award, having impressed the judges back in 2011 with his book Slipless in Settle. Congratulations, Harry!
