by Dennis Lillee
This is an intimate, fascinating and compelling illustrated autobiography of Australia’s legendary fast bowler, Dennis Lillee. Fans of cricket will delight in the tale of how this puny, shy boy from the outskirts of Perth became the bane of batsmen all over the world during his 13 fiery years of Test cricket. He began his career as a tearaway fast bowler and ended it as the leading Test wicket-taker, taking a wicket off his final ball.
This book provides insight into the fast-paced life of one of the country’s most celebrated sportsmen through photos of D.K.’s private life, his career and everything in between. As well as reflections and yarns from DK himself, it will feature dozens of written contributions from a who’s who of Australian and international cricketers including Jeff Thomson, Rod Marsh, Ian and Greg Chappell, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee, Adam Gilchrist, Ian Botham, David Gower, Bob Willis, Gary Sobers and Viv Richards to name just a few.
