About this deal

The usual format seems to be a macho picture on the cover and inside a discription of rugby matches from the past, pay back for, grudges, injuries, crude anecdotes, drunken adventures and lists of "lad's" practical jokes, hilarious no doubt for the particiants but tedious for the rest of us. This is a rugby autobiography that tells a full and often funny and sometimes painful and moving story of a giant. When Grace saves his life in a kayaking accident - if it was an accident - and Evan's troubled son arrives to stay, all three are drawn together in a way that forces a reckoning with their personal traumas and draws them back into society.

Martin’s book covers everything from his school age rugby to playing in premiership/national/lions and World Cup - he comes across as very thoughtful and humble for such an impressive man.

As a second row forward, he won 31 caps for England and three for the British Lions during the 1990s, when he was also a serving police officer. This may result in small marks to the dustjacket and title page, please also bear in mind that each signature will be a little different from the one we show here.

He played for England during one of the most successful eras in English rugby, winning two Grand Slams alongside legendary players such as Will Carling, Jeremy Guscott, Brian Moore and Rory Underwood. He has come to try to process his grief and make himself desirable again as a husband, a father and a business partner. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. Good ‘rugby’ start, mixed with some personal insights, but started to dread it would be ‘then there was this other rugby match’.
