The Return of John Macnab
By (author) Andrew Greig
The wager: to poach a salmon, grouse and a deer from three Royal Estates. The challengers: three men in a mid-life crisis who should know better. The wild card: a flirtatious female journalist who won’t take no for an answer. Striding over the Scottish Highlands with a poet’s eye on the wilderness and a firm grip on the adventure, Andrew Greig reimagines John Buchan’s classic novel with a little less tweed, a little more sex, and just the right measure of whisky.
Andrew Greig is the author of six acclaimed books of poetry, two Himalayan mountaineering expedition books, and five novels including That Summer, When They Lay Bare and Romanno Bridge. His non-fiction books include Preferred Lies and At the Loch of the Green Corrie. He lives in Orkney and Edinburgh, with his wife, the novelist Lesley Glaister.
