The Don bounced upstairs, past alcoves displaying trophies and his favourite portrait of himself executing a cover drive, and into the inner sanctum – the small Bradman study … In 1995, journalist and author Roland Perry wrote to Sir Donald Bradman requesting a face-to-face interview for a biography he was planning of the great cricketer. Surprisingly, the Don agreed. For Perry, those days spent speaking with Bradman at the former cricketer’s quiet home in suburban Adelaide were the beginning of a conversation that continued for years. Throughout, the real Bradman shone, not only as a great sportsman but as a brilliant thinker, a man of integrity, a humourist and musician with a fondness for tea and a Scotch or two. In Tea and Scotch with Bradman, Perry paints an intimate and revealing portrait of the man many regard as the greatest Australian cricketer of all time.
