The Art of Coarse Writing
The Art of Coarse Sport by Michael Green
First published 1965 by Hutchinson & Co.
Illustrated is the First Edition
Another book of articles, some from the Sunday Times. “My Grandfather Might Have Nearly Bowled W. G. Grace” from the Listener also forms the content of one chapter of Michael’s first autobiography. Rugby, Hockey, Spectating (is that a word?), Cricket, Golf, the Sporting Tour, Camping, Sailing, playing Fruit Machines, and Acting all get in on the Coarse Theme, so some clues there as to the author’s idea of what constitutes Sport.
