Summary

Summary

Born in Norfolk and educated at Eton and Cambridge, Henry Calthorpe Blofeld, 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 the heart of the game for over fifty years, and his career has taken him to the far corners of the earth. Stuffed to the gunwales with delicious anecdotes, this autobiography brings his astonishingly colorful story bang up to date.
