It is no exaggeration to say that snooker remains one of the most popular sports across the globe. The game, unsurprisingly, boasts a host of conspicuous literary and intellectual figures amongst its followers: Stephen Fry, Martin Amis, Julian Barnes, and Richard Osman, to name just a few. But what is it exactly that draws people in time and time again? Clive James once called snooker ‘chess with balls’, and it is a fertile comparison – snooker is a sport that celebrates subtlety, slowness, and mystery. It teems with nuances and depths; abundantly rewards serious contemplation. Discussing everything from truth, loss, luck and more, this book illustrates just how much one game of snooker can offer us.
