A masterclass of biographical writing,
This review is from: Playing Through: A Year of Life and Links Along the Scottish Coast (Hardcover)
Day 3 of the open championship 2002 and the rain begins to pour. I ran for shelter whilst the more hardy sole continued to line the fairways. Had I not run for shelter I would have never known about this book. Thank-you rain (for a change).
I'm usually more of a science fiction fan, and came to this book 5 times before I gave in and bought it. I thought it would end up being nothing but a souvenir of my visit to Gullane, but it turned out to be much more.
The book looks at the life of Curtis and those around him, whilst giving an in depth insite in to golf in East Lothian.
So whether your a biography fan, golf fan, a historian of any description, or just a lover of a good story, this could appeal to you. I find myself unable to put the book down when I start to read, and already I want to know more about golf in East Lothian and Curtis Gillespie.
In simple terms this really is a masterclass of biographical writing.
