Information
GET HER OFF THE PITCH is the story of one woman's foray into the very masculine and rather baffling world of sport. Lynne Truss‚ author of Eats‚ Shoots and Leaves‚ spent four years as an unlikely sports writer for The Times. It was a job that took her around the world (via the most difficult journeys and least glamorous hotels) and introduced her to some of the greatest living sportsmen (and many argumentative men with clipboards).

During her time at the newspaper she faced disdain from fellow sports writers; undertook last-minute‚ pre-fight research into 'The Rumble in the Jungle' (Muhammad Ali won‚ surprisingly); tried unsuccessfully to interpret bizarre commentary and memorize results statistics; wept at football matches and discovered a lasting love for golf. She was even nominated for Sports Writer of the Year.

GET HER OFF THE PITCH is the hilarious‚ perceptive and at times moving account of those four strange years. It is perfect for those for whom sport is a matter of life and death‚ for those who have no idea what all the fuss is about - and for everyone in between.
