E.W. Swanton wrote and commentated on cricket for many years and wrote the cricketing obituaries for The Daily Telegraphy from 1947 until his own sad death. In Cricketers of My Time he selected over seventy of the obituaries that meant the most to him - tributes on the likes of Percy Chapman, Denis Compton, Harold Larwood, Walter Hammond and many more besides - and brought them together in a volume that all lovers of sport will treasure.

This collection of authoritative essays, all edited and updated by Swanton himself, include his thoughts on S.F. Barnes, Lindsay Hassett, Jack Hobbs, Brian Johnston, Peter May, Bill O'Reilly, Herbert Sutcliffe and Sir Frank Worrell, for whom he gave the memorial address. The book contains a wealth and breadth of material.
