But he was also a distinguished journalist for the Guardian, a Liberal parliamentary candidate, a courageous opponent of apartheid in sport from the earliest opportunity, and a connoisseur - and imbiber - of fine wine without equal. David Rayvem Allens definitive biography was acclaimed on its first publication and won the Cricket Societys award for Cricket Book of the Year. Now reissued by Aurum in a new paperback edition to tie in with its publication of the authors authorised biography of E.W. Swanton, Arlott evokes both a broadcasting legend and a sensitive, humane man, whose graphic, pensive and wry commentaries came to epitomise the sound of an English summer.
