Andre Deutsch, 105. Great Portland Street, London, WC1 have brought out a paperback
containing Private Eve’s “Colemanbal Is” illustrated by Larry, which will mean something to those who read this publication. MOTOR SPORT having been featured only once, we think, in Private Eye. we cannot now recall when or why, we do not normally see it, but it is clear that “Colemanballs” are mostly gaffs committed by prominent writers or broadcasters, rather like high-class schoolboy “howlers”. This little £1.95 paperback abounds in them. Football, for instance, has 95, cricket 29. cycling one, and motoring sport nine, all but one in our league being by Murray Walker.
