Join bestselling Scottish science-fiction writer Iain M Banks on his tour of Scotland's whisky distilleries, and a journey of self-discovery, as he searches for the perfect dram. An ideal book for fans of whisky, the Scottish Highlands and humurous travelogues. A Scottish Bill Bryson.
Iain Banks was born in Scotland in 1954. He came to widespread public notice in 1984 with the publication of his first novel, The Wasp Factory. Since then he has gained enormous and popular critical acclaim with further works of fiction and science fiction. In 1993 he was acknowledged as one of the Best of Young British Writers. He lives in Fife, Scotland.
"...In the final judgement, it does what every good book should manage to do ... and what a hundred other books on whisky (and a thousand other books on Scotland) have signally failed to do: makes you want to go for a drink with the author" * Observer * "Studded with bracing shots of pure insight and eloquence. And he's sound on the scotch as well" * The Independent * "It's a very readable and hugely informative book, and Bank's gentle humour permeates the pages" * Time Out * "It's an engaging piece of work, part love letter, part memoir" * Esquire * "A beautifully realised fusion of travelogue, social commentary and drinking guide. Scotland's most famous export is decanted into full-bodied, humorous prose." * Independent on Sunday *
