Rowers feel persecution and insult daily, in all corners of the Earth. They respond in different ways: some go faster; others challenge themselves to row across the Atlantic; still more flex their pectorals and ask you to ‘say that again’. Now, for all those fast-moving, ocean-crossing, pec-flexing rowers comes a new book, designed to teach an uncaring world the true meaning of their sport.
Cameron Henderson-Begg is a jobless humourist. In former times he would have been called a ‘scrounger’ or ‘vagrant’, but the times, as a great philosopher once observed, they are a-changin’. Working from a particularly dark corner of deepest, darkest Surrey, the author still lives with his mother. In fact, she just made him a lovely cup of tea.
