'A beautifully told account', says Wisden of Duncan Hamilton's The Kings of Summer: 'He's a man who appreciates the theatre of cricket, and he writes about each change of pace and mood with equal elegance... There is a particular pleasure in reading him on the long stretches of the game when nothing much happens: "as the sun drops, the shadows become fantastically long and lamp-black, but the pitch remains in intense sunshine, like a lit stage... One moment passes into the next, beautifully seductive. Someone bowls. Someone bats. Someone fields." Glorious.'
