Gilbert Speaks on Sticky Wicket

10 May

Stickey Wicket

Ewart Rouse is a fellow writer and member of the South Jersey Writers’ Group. I had posted an interview with Ewart Rouse on his love for the game of cricket and his Sticky Wicket series in May of 2016 on my Gilbert Curiosities Blog. You can read about it here. I am very excited to learn that Ewart has added two new books to the series.

Play ball!
South Jersey Writers’ Group member Ewart Rouse, whom I featured in an earlier blog about his love of the game of cricket, is out with two new editions in his “Sticky Wicket” series of novels – “The Cricket Match” and “The Sticky Wicket Collection.” The covers of both novels were designed by fellow SJWG member Shelley Szajner.

Suitable for readers of any age, the novels are rollicking accounts of the quest of madcap immigrants to achieve the American dream through cricket in a southern New Jersey township that views them as “outsiders” who play a foreign game nobody understands and assign their playing field to local youths who play America’s pastime – baseball.

It’s a clash of cultures that Rouse has sought to capture with humor, based on his experiences as a founding member of the New Jersey Cricket Association, the Philadelphia Cricket League, and the Echelon Cricket Club, South Jersey’s oldest cricket organization.
