Author(s): David Frith
David Frith's acclaimed biography of Archie Jackson, Australian cricket's doomed batting genius, still stands as the definitive account of a sporting life cut heartbreakingly short.
When Frith's first iteration of this classic biography was published in 1974, in a limited edition, it became the rarest of publishing phenomenon: an award-winner and an immediate collector's item. In its foreword, England's legendary fast bowler, Harold Larwood, wrote of Archie Jackson: "You just had to find a place in your heart for a fellow like him."
In this new edition, Archie Jackson - Cricket's Tragic Genius, Frith has revised and updated the story, adding precious new material gleaned during a lifelong of devotion to his subject.
