A Chirp Out to the Cricket Team of Barrie...

I've known about Peter Pan's First XI by Kevin Telfer for some time now.
But I've only recently gotten around to getting a copy.

I'm just reporting that I do have it... I have yet to read it.
I'm not so much in the mood for a non-fiction book.

It tells the tale of Sir J.M. Barrie's cricket team, the Allahakbarries.  What's special about it other than being his and its nifty title?  Well, the members of it, of course.  It's a star-studded team of literary giants:  A.A. Milne, P. G. Wodehouse, Jerome K. Jerome, Walter Raleigh and Arthur Conan Doyle to name a few.

I will get around to reading it... and I'll be sure to say what I think of it.
