Wynne-Thomas, Peter – Arthur Carr (biography)


The rise and fall of Nottinghamshire’s Bodyline captain. Softback, 304 pages.


Sub titled: The rise and fall of Nottinghamshire’s Bodyline captain. 304 pages, softback. Much new research and light on one of the key proponents of Bodyline.

As part of his introduction, the award-winning Wynne-Thomas writes: ‘There exists (previously) Carr’s own hosted autobiography written in haste after the tragic events of 1935, some of which have first appeared in a series of newspaper articles. Carr’s book certainly conveys a flavour of his personality. Yet I hope that the details  set out in the present work provide a more rounded picture and do justice to a man whom I got to like and admire as I dug through numberless old newspaper files, minute books and other scraps. Discussions with a few relatives who have first hand knowledge of him have been invaluable but alas it has proved too late to talk to the county cricketers who were his colleagues.’
