Synopsis : The 145th edition of Wisden reports on the calamitous World Cup, the invigorating World Twenty20, the volatile Australia v India series and twelve stuttering months for England. Under a new editor, Scyld Berry, the 2008 Almanack is the first Wisden to include the record of every Test cricketer, past and present. The game's best writers cover all the stories you would expect and some you wouldn't. * Mike Brearley, Ian Chappell, John Woodcock, Simon Barnes and Tony Cozier profile the five greatest cricketers never chosen to be a Wisden Cricketer of the Year (clue: there are four bowlers and only one batsman) * Andrew Strauss looks at "What Duncan did for us" * Four county cricketers tell the stories of their 2007 season * Carl Bridge and Doug Insole look behind the legend of Don Bradman on the centenary of his birth * Nick Newman celebrates the enduring power of cricket cartoons * Mike Atherton, Ian Healy and Robert Craddock assess the great careers of Brian Lara, Adam Gilchrist and Glenn McGrath PLUS: The burnt gravy which stopped play and the visiting county who had to bring their own stumps "There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden". Andrew Baker in the Daily Telegraph
* Summer 2007: Four county cricketers tell their contrasting stories

Description de la librairie : Since its opening in 1991 within the premises of a small model factory at Alnwick Station, Barter Books has grown well beyond original expectations. Starting off in what was the ticket and parcel office of the original Station, the bookshop has expanded down the platforms and through the waiting rooms, until it now covers over one-quarter of the whole Station site. This translates into an area exceeding 8000 square feet and containing over 350,000 books on more than three miles of shelving. Now houses the Famous Writers Mural - 40 feet long by 18 feet high. The bookshop also sells secondhand DVDs, videos and music (CDs, LPs, cassettes, sheet music), as well as a small but growing section of artists' prints. And then there are the shop's many extra features! These include an open fire in the winter, coffee and cookies, a model railway running above the book columns, a mini-cybercafe, generous seating and browsing areas, a children's room, and dozens of glass cases containing many of the more interesting antiquarian books. A final note: during the enlargement process the owners took (and are taking!) particular pleasure in restoring, as they can, various features of the Station. This so far includes the original North Eastern Railway cast iron fireplaces, two of the Station clocks, a drinking fountain, and various waiting rooms. Most dramatic of all, however, was the restoration of part of the glass roof. That was when we all stood about watching as the sun came streaming in for the first time in many years to bring the wonderful old Station visually back to life. The very latest addition has been a forty foot mural celebrating the names of those who worked at Alnwick Station in its railway days - over 400 names plus the coats of arms of the three railway companies involved.
