Two mismatched golfing buddies--Don, a gambler and victim of brittle bone disease, with one short leg; Michael, a writer who is agonizing over a broken marriage and a smashed love affair--embark on a two-week adventure to play the historic links of Scotland. Lloyd James breathes a pulsating vibrancy into Michael's telling of the passions of golf, as well as moments of inspiration and soul-searching, and a growing and deep friendship. James's Don is no less impressive; he is characterized with a Southern drawl, deliberate speech, and quiet emotions that occasionally explode. Further, James's Scottish brogues for golf course keepers and caddies bring light, humor, and wisdom to the book. This zany sports saga has enough entertainment to delight even the non-golfer.
