Overview

A funny, beautifully observed book of humorous stories, funny quotes, quips, and anecdotes from Scots talking about Scotland

In Scotland, people will tell you that they love the summer, it's one of the best days of the year, and that wry sense of humor is what inspires The Wicked Wit of Scotland. This book pulls together stories, quotes, quips, and anecdotes from Scots talking about Scotland, and others from all over the world relating what they most admire about the country that J. K. Rowling described as "one of the most hauntingly beautiful places in the world. The history is fascinating, the men are handsome and the whisky is delicious. But don't eat the macaroni pies." Featuring wit and wisdom from writers such as Armando Iannucci and Compton Mackenzie, Stanley Baxter, and Neil Munro, the sometimes dubious delights of Scottish cuisine are discussed, along with the culture, folklore, politics, and sports.
