The Herald Diary
By (author) Ken Smith
Wherever Scots gather they tell jokes and stories. And the very best of these much-loved tales find their way to the daily Diary column of Scotland’s best-selling quality newspaper, “The Herald”. It is the home of humour from the chip-shop queues of late-night Glasgow, to the bons mots of High Court judges, to the humour of the classroom. No wonder Sir Sean Connery says it is the first thing he reads online every day from his home in the Bahamas. In this volume we gather the very best tales from the column, proving that ordinary Scots are still the natural comedians of the world.
Ken Smith is the award-winning Glasgow journalist on The Diary who gathers the wit of the country together every day for Herald readers. He says it beats working for a living.
