The rules of backyard cricket by Jock Serong Q&A: 30 March, 2017
"The rules of backyard cricket is a novel of suspense in the tradition of Peter Temple’s Truth. With glorious writing harnessed to a gripping narrative, it observes celebrity, masculinity-humanity-with clear-eyed lyricism and exhilarating narrative drive."
Formerly a lawyer, Jock Serong is now a full-time writer. His first novel, Quota, won the 2015 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Crime Novel. His most recent novel is The rules of backyard cricket. Jock is married with four children and lives in Port Fairy, Victoria.
