Succeeding The Learning Game, Jonathan’s critically-acclaimed 2000 book about teaching, The Following Game is about passion and obsession. It is about cricket, family and poetry; but most of all it is about a father following a son’s career in the public eye and the close relationship Jonathan and Ed Smith share.
‘The Following Game is tremendously good. As with his book on teaching, Jonathan Smith seems to have invented a genre to meet his immediate needs. The result is completely natural: talking voice, spontaneity of exposition, insights and connections popping up as and when they need to, candour, uncompromised expressions of feeling – all that. So it speaks to me – who couldn't be more indifferent to cricket – with great directness and passion.’
Christopher Reid, winner of the Costa Book of the Year, 2009.
