Playing the Game

(1991)
A novel by

 
 
Neville Cardus suspected that K.S.Ranjitsinhji,the legendary Indian prince who played cricket for Sussex and MCC at the turn of the century,was 'perhaps a dream,all dreamed on some midsummer's night long ago.' Studded with imagined events fashioned from known facts,Playing the game is Ian Buruma's absorbing and richly entertaining re-invention of Ranji's life - a novel imagining itself a biography.
