Narrated by Gordon Kennedy
Random House presents the audiobook edition of Made in Scotland by Billy Connolly, read by Gordon Kennedy. All roads lead home. 'After my knighthood was announced,a woman from the BBC came toGlasgow to interview me.
We satdown in a lovely hotel in a nice partof town, and she hit me with her firstquestion: "This must mean a lot toyou, with you coming from nothing?"I looked at her, and I laughed. "I did'nae come from nothing,"I told her. "I come from something."I grew up in the tenements ofpost-war Glasgow.
I am very proudto be working class, and especiallya working-class Glaswegian whohas worked in the shipyards.
I comefrom the working class. And, mostof all, I come from Scotland. Scotland is a unique and wonderfulplace. Its national motto saysa lot about it: Nemo me impunelacessit.
A decent translation mightbe: 'By all means punch mein the nose but prepare yourselffor a kick in the arse.'I did'nae come from nothing:I come from Scotland. And thisbook is about why I will always behappy and proud that I do.'
