Dal Stivens: ‘The Demon Bowler’ and Other Cricket Stories

Tom Keneally Centre Reading

Join us in the Tom Keneally Centre to revisit the work of one of Australia’s greatest (but sadly departed) writers, Dal Stivens.

Dal Stivens’ contribution to Australian literature was huge. His award-winning fiction is widely admired for its humour and descriptions of the bush, and his tall tales and cricketing stories are especially well-loved.

On the first day of the final test match played at The Oval, Peter Rainey will read a selection of Dal’s humourous cricket stories, such as The Demon Bowler, The Man Who Almost Ruined Cricket, The Ring-In and Rolling Over the Poms.

Come and enjoy.
