Fanatical about cricket since he was a boy, Miles Jupp would do anything to see his heroes play. But perhaps deciding to bluff his way into the press corps during England's Test series in India wasn't his best idea. By claiming to be the cricket correspondent for BBC Scotland and getting a job with the (Welsh) Western Mail, Miles lands the press pass that will surely be the ticket to his dreams.

Soon, he finds himself in cricket heaven - drinking with David Gower and Beefy, sharing bar room banter with Nasser Hussain, and swapping diarrhea stories with the Test Match Special team. Amazing! But struggling in the heat under the burden of his own fibs, reality soon catches up with Miles as - like a cricket-obsessed Boot from Evelyn Waugh's Scoop - he bumbles from one disaster to the next.

A joyous, charming, yet cautionary tale, Fibber in the Heat is for anyone who's ever dreamt about doing nothing but watching cricket all day long.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by William Emeny | 4/10/2013

    " An entertaining, quintessentially British tale of Miles bumbling and blagging his way into the press corp on England's tour of India. Humorous and witty, Miles learns a big lesson about keeping your hobby and your work life separate. A very enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Emma | 12/25/2012

    " More of a gently amusing cricketing story, rather than one which will make you laugh out loud. Apart from the Balamory moments, which are hilarious... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Steven Rance | 8/30/2012

    " Fabulously funny, self depricating. One for the cricket lover me thinks. :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Alison | 7/9/2012

    " Enjoyable read - managed to make a series of cricket matches accessible even to someone who is not a fan. Would not recommend though to someone who has no interest in cricket. "
