The Corridor of Certainty

By Geoffrey Boycott

After a period of his life when a court case and then throat cancer threatened first his career and then his life, Geoffrey Boycott re-emerged as an apparently changed man – but how true had the caricatured image of him as an archetypal Yorkshireman ever really been? In this fascinating new book, his first autobiographical work for more than 15 years, Boycott not only relives his terrifying battle with cancer but also opens up about the personal side of his life as never before, writing movingly about his long-time love Rachael, and their daughter Emma. He talks about his many other interests and friendships beyond cricket, with a moving chapter on Brian Clough as well as revealing some surprising enthusiasms: Boycott and Katy Perry? See more
