Summary

A gloriously batty adventure that takes readers through Balkan minefields, border bribes, and Sarajevo graveyards at 2 am. In this hilarious and eccentric traveler's tale, Scotsman Angus Bellleaves the Montreal magazine industry and sets off in his škoda to discover a hidden cricketing world across central and Eastern Europe. From Estonia to Crimea, Bell learns that Slavs are playing the Englishman's game. Between games, Bellis pursued by the KGB, becomes embroiled in a drug bust on the Midnight Express, and seeks emergency treatment from a Romanian dentist. His travel companions include a Guatemalan anarchist, a Ukrainian chicken, and a tobacco farmer who played cricket and rugby for Rhodesia.
