So the really important Michael Simkins, I’d say, is an actor/writer in England. I put his book Fatty Batter on my Christmas list, and I got it! Of course, when I tried to read it, my ignorance of cricket made it very heavy work. I trudged through a hundred pages or so, frequently skimming over details beyond my ken. Ultimately, I admitted defeat. Nonetheless, I related to what Fatty Batter had to say. And hey, we both attended RADA. (Yes, I just did the summer program; he went for real.) I would love to meet him one day.
