The Wicked Wit of Scotland, Paperback / softback Book

The Wicked Wit of Scotland Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


This funny and beautifully observed book pulls together humorous stories, funny quotes, quips and anecdotes about this small but remarkable country. While the Scots are proud of their friendly reputation, loud about their many contributions to the world – such as whisky, penicillin and television – and fiercely protective of Scottish delicacies such as haggis and Irn Bru, they are also celebrated for their famously dry and dark humour. Featuring wit and wisdom from writers such as Armando Iannucci, Compton Mackenzie, Stanley Baxter and Neil Munro, this light-hearted book celebrates Scottish wit at its best while looking at the culture, folklore, politics and sport that make up Scotland.
