Right Off the Bat, Sir! Right Off the Bat!

One of Alfred Hitchcock’s great films of the 1930s, The Lady Vanishes, significantly involves cricket. Before this year similarly vanishes—along with The Lady—we call your attention to a super deal. “While supplies last,” as the pitchmen (not pitchers) say, our publisher, Paul Dry Books, is offering Right Off the Bat, all 208 pages of it, for the holiday-gift price of $5. That’s three quid! Click here for this extra-special offer. And know there is an adage in book publishing: Buy two—one to keep; the second to give away (as the perfect stocking stuffer). We are shameless. Go for it, Mate! (Here come Bouvard et Pécuchet-like Basil Redford and Naunton Wayne with more on the subject.)
