Book review

This authoritative, entertaining, and eminently browsable reference book, arranged in an easily accessible A-to-Z format, is an absorbing and imaginative feast of Scottish lore, language, history, and culture, from the mythical origins of the Scots in Scythia to the contemporary Scotland of the Holyrood parliament and Trainspotting. Here Tartan Tories rub shoulders with Torry girls, the Misery from the Manse exchanges a nod with Stalin’s Granny, Thomas the Rhymer and the Wizard of Reay walk hand in hand with Bible John. The result is a breathtaking, quirky celebration of Scotland and a rollercoaster ride round Caledonia, from Furry Boots City to the Costa Clyde, via the Cold Shoulder of Scotland, the West Lothian Alps, and the Reykjavik of the South.
