When it comes to the England set-up, few players have as much experience as David James. The veteran former goalkeeper has well and truly seen it all. Representing the Three Lions first at U21 level and then through numerous reserve teams, the Hertfordshire-born stopper spent a career in and out of the national side; dealing with the heartache of rejection and the sheer surprise at being recalled while deep into the twilight of his career.

Restored Richard Wright novel hits bestseller lists

More than 60 years after his death, Richard Wright is again a bestselling author and very much in line with the present. “The Man Who Lived Underground,” a short novel written in the 1940s and never published in full until this spring, is the surreal but credible story of a Black man who is tortured by police into confessing to a double murder he didn’t commit. He escapes into the city’s sewer system. Like an inversion of the American road novel or a tale of space travel, Fred Daniels inhabits a world outside the world, making up the rules as he goes along and seeing his old life in a new way.
