Lynne Truss is one of Britain's best-loved comic writers and is the author of the worldwide bestsellers `Eats, Shoots & Leaves' and `Talk to the Hand'. She reviews for the Sunday Times and writes regularly for radio.
'By turns hilarious, unpredictable and controversial. It's a terrific read, whether you love sport or are still wondering what all the fuss is about.' Mail on Sunday'She can write comedy for Britain.' Sunday Times'Truss is not only warm and witty on her personal journey from footie virgin to sports bore, she also delivers unique and piercing perspectives. What elevates it far beyond the average nostalgia trip is her trademark pith and an inventive way with simile and metaphor.' Emma John, Observer'If you are a fan of Truss's self-depreciating moroseness you will hugely appreciate 'Get Her Off the Pitch!' ... her writing on sport was always worth reading.' Alyson Rudd, The Times'Who will want to read this book? Just people like me who are largely indifferent to sport but enjoy literate, amusing, properly punctuated writing about anything.' Peter Lewis, Daily Mail'An amiable amble through the press boxes of the sporting world.' Andrew Baker, Daily Telegraph
