A politically incorrect petrolhead - A delight to read,
This review is from: Raw Spirit: In Search of the Perfect Dram (Paperback)
A book written by a politically incorrect petrolhead about the delights of Scottish roads and the adventure of a life time. The distileries and malt whiskys of Scotland provide the literary vehicle for Iain Banks to let off steam about the Iraq war, flash photography and all manner of frustrations. His adventures with friends (mainly involving excess alcohol) are vivid and funny. A book for boys about driving too fast through the glens in search of the perfect dram. Its a book that is just crying out for an open fire, a leather armchair and a glass of speyside malt. When I retire this is just the kind of personal quest that I may undertake if the eco-nutters have not got us all driving hybrid cars by then.
