Funny, sad and uplifting, Shot and a Ghost lifts the lid on a year in the life of James Willstrop, one of the world's top squash players. As critical of himself as of others, he talks openly about his relationship with father and coach, Malcolm; the devastating death of his mother, Lesley; and his fierce and often acrimonious rivalry with fellow Yorkshireman Nick Matthew. A must for sports fans.
