Who’s reading my favourite cricket book?

Speaking of books, look who’s reading my favourite cricket book, Barak Obama. And he likes it “a lot” apparently. (While the previous president thought that the Bad Sex award winner and overall pile of rubbish I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe was great, and our own prime minister reckons Johnny English is his favourite movie (33% on Rotten Tomatoes).)

The article I’ve linked to above (the one about Obama’s reading Netherland, not the one about bad sex writing) seems to think the novel is actually about the opportunities offered to immigrants in the United States. It barely mentions cricket. Oh well. It’s a mark of a good book if different people get different things from it.
