Slipless in Settle is a search for the more dignified cricketing world of the ladies in flowery frocks, a nostalgic journey through northern League and village cricket, through mill towns, Dales hamlets, and pit villages where the pub is named after former-West Indies captain Rohan Kanhai. In the manner of the author's William Hill-shortlisted The Far Corner, Slipless in Settle mixes travelogue and sports history with witty match reports, observations on spectators, reminiscences of the author’s own low-grade playing career, and whole heap of pastry-based snacks.

Harry Pearson is a journalist and writer who contributes regularly to GQ and the Guardian.Review:
** 'Packed with comic tales to delight the cricket aficionado and non-fan alike―DAILY MIRROR
** 'By turns wry, tender and bawdy, Pearson's prose is none the less as steady and measured as a glob of gravy running down the side of a Yorkshire pudding. For anyone wishing to sample 'cricket with the crusts on', Slipless in Settle is well worth the detour―Sunday Telegraph
