We'll Get 'Em in Sequins, By Max Davidson


Here's a sentence that doesn't end as you'd expect. "In these seven portraits of Yorkshire cricketers… I have tried to map a sexual earthquake."

Stemming from Darren Gough's triumph on Strictly Come Dancing, this eccentric project is full of weird conjunctions: W.G.Grace (a few non-Yorkies also get in) scored 1,000 runs in the month Wilde was sentenced; G.Boycott was "born in the same decade as Davd Bowie"; F.S.

Trueman once wrote about love: "My stomach was doing cartwheels." All a bit odd but it will pass a rainy session at Headingley.
