MERV; My Life and Other Funny Stories: Merv Hughes with David Emerson

Biography of, and cricket stories from, Australian cricketer Merv Hughes.

Hughes' transition from unthinking tearaway fast bowler to valuable all- rounder didn't come naturally. It was an outcome of hours of hard work drawing on his persistent good humour, infectious antics and signature moustache. Story takes us to & including the 1989 tour of England. Foreword, Allan Border. 143pp.

Recounting his early days, this was Merv's first book that set off a flood of comical successors. At time of writing he was possibly Australia's most popular sportsperson.
