Nick Compton has an incredible sporting ancestry. A literal golden boy, his grandfather Denis Compton played cricket for England and football for Arsenal. Honed at an elite English boarding school, with a telegenic profile perfectly suited to the modern media environment, Nick appeared to be blessed with that rare ability to be able to stride out and face down the world’s quickest bowlers, to survive and thrive in the danger zone of the hurtling new ball. However, greatness in any field comes at a price and this gripping memoir explores the almost ‘Faustian pact’ he made in order to secure that time in the sun as a key member of an England team alongside such greats as Alastair Cook, Kevin Pietersen and Ben Stokes.
