In 2005, Aurum republished with success, J.L. Carr's miniature and classic Dictionary of Extra-Ordinary Cricketers - the book reprinted within a few months. Now, in its first collaboration with John Wisden Co, publishers of the celebrated annual Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, it publishes a similarly eccentric gallery of quixotic and eccentric cricketers, edited by acclaimed cricket writer Gideon Haigh. But where readers of J.L. Carr were never quite sure whether the author had somehow embellished - or even completely invented - the facts about the cricketers he anthologised, the esoteric details and mad whimsies recorded in these obituaries are exactly as they appeared in the august pages of the Almanack itself.
