"I doubt there will be a better book written about this period in West Indies cricket history" (Clive Lloyd)

"Outstanding... Lister's book works magnificently not just because he tells a great story with unfussy clarity and journalistic rigour but because - like the best sports books - it is not content to stick to sport." (Richard Whitehead The Times)

"A perceptive and comprehensive account that more than cricket knows" (Gideon Haigh)

"Calm and fair, but with pace and bounce, the story of the most feared team cricket has ever seen" (Matthew Engel)

"As near definitive as you could and knowledgeable" (Danny Kelly Observer)


Fire in Babylon tells the full extraordinary story of the West Indies cricket team that brought the world to its knees and a people to its feet

Inspired by the Stevan Riley film.
