Aussie-Croat Pens Memoir: “Machine Guns And Cricket Bats”


What do machine guns have to do with cricket? Croatian cricket international Jeff Grzinic explains in the entertaining memoir Machine Guns and Cricket Bats. The fascinating behind-the-scenes look into the sometimes “dangerous” and always entertaining world of international cricket is a must-read for sports fans.

As a toddler in Western Australia, author Grzinic was involved in a serious car accident. He spent decades overcoming his injuries to become an international cricketer, playing for a country that didn’t even exist when he was born.

This inspiring true-life story about one man’s struggle that ends in reaching a seemingly impossible goal, makes an intriguing read not only for cricket fans, but for fans of life.

Competing in the world of international cricket, the author’s fun memoir takes readers through the underbelly of European cricket, including all the spectacular sights, cheap motels, and most importantly, the people he meets. The foreward is written by famous Australian cricketer Simon Katich, who himself also has Croatian ancestory.  For more information about Jeff and his books you can visit: http://www.jeffgrzinic.com
