  • Something quite brilliant

    Serong captures a terrific sense of antipodean suburban childhood, in a very authentic and layered way. He writes in a literary rather than airport thriller manner, with prose that delights as much as the situations and characters it reveals. Serong delves into the myth-making around sporting heroes, the pressures put on players by themselves and everyone else around them, and the high stakes when a game is more than a game. He has crafted characters that ring so very true as individuals, while being symbolic of greater themes. THE RULES OF BACKYARD CRICKET triggered lots of questions for me as I read, interesting thoughts about life and the choices we make. What price success? How much do we really understand about what our parents may have sacrificed for us? How important is talent compared to maturity and application? How many chances should somebody get? Is it ever too late to repent? A literary thriller blending sport, crime, and coming of age tale into something quite brilliant

    Thanks for your feedback!
