Made In Scotland: My Grand Adventures in A Wee Country

£8.99

All roads lead back home. Billy Connolly may be a citizen of the world, but in his heart he’s never been far from his homeland. ‘Made in Scotland’ is Billy’s unique and intimate portrait of his native Scotland, a love letter to the places and people that made him. It’s an adventure inspired by a single incident: the moment Billy received his Knighthood and was asked ‘How does it feel to have achieved all this when you came from nothing?’ His response was, ‘But I did come from something!’ So begins an odyssey through the Highlands, Lowlands and the Barrowlands on a shaggy dog quest to find out what that ‘something’ was and whether it is still there. Far from a typical travelogue, Billy’s quest is as much through his memories and experiences as it is through his excursions, with a series of key artefacts prompting reminiscences.

Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Where do you come from? It’s one of the most basic human questions of all. But there is another question, which might sound a wee bit similar but is actually very different: What do you come from? And, let me tell you, that question can take you all sorts of strange places…’

In Made in Scotland, legendary comic and national treasure Billy Connolly returns to his roots, reflecting on his life, his homeland and what it means – then and now – to be Scottish.

Full of Billy’s distinctive humour, Made in Scotland is a hilarious and heartfelt love letter to the place and the people that made him.
