The BookViral Review:

An ode to the halcyon days of youth and a bygone era in Pennsylvania it would be a cold heart that remained untouched by Bambrick’s memoir as he takes us down memory lane to the 1950s and beyond.

It’s a story of strength and resilience that touches generations, which tells of sorrows and joys; hardships and successes whilst introducing poignant social commentary that touches on the divides between ethnic backgrounds, status and wealth

Written in engaging prose the characters he describes are wonderfully observed and so personal it’s like he has opened a window to their souls with each one described with the greatest care and deliberation. And it’s this considered approach that gives Bambrick’s memoir its prevailing sense of authenticity. Not only capturing the angst of our younger years, but the unique intimacy, and sensitivity of those relationships we cherished most.

Cricket might be relatively short but it demands a slow read to really appreciate the intermittent moments of normalcy that pepper the path to our adult years. And unlike celebrity memoirs which seem to follow a string of contrived events in a tedious stream of clichés Bambrick reminds us that the extraordinary can be found in the most fleeting of occasions. To stay with us for the rest of our lives.

A heartwarming and often humorous memoir that captures a treasured slice of history Cricket is a recommended read.
