The last in the series in which writers look at how sports have been portrayed in the arts, from books to painting, film to photography.
Today, former England cricketer and writer Ed Smith looks at what we can learn from the portrayal of cricket in the very English novels of J. L. Carr, such as 'A Month in the Country', and 'A Season in Sinji'.
Ed Smith was a professional cricketer for 13 years, including playing three Test matches for England. He is now an author, journalist and broadcaster.
