Reader's note

A 1961 edition of Whisky Galore by Compton Mackenzie. As the title suggests, it is 'non-austerity' in every respect. It is indeed an uproariously funny story. The scene is the enchanting Hebridean islands of Great Todday and Little Todday, which Comptom Mackenzie has made his own. On this occasion the inhabitants are more concerned withteh replenishment of their supplies of whisky than with the defence of the Islands against the enemy. Sergeant major Odd and his charming Peggy, Captain Waggett, Father Macalister, the Macroons and the MacRuries all make this tale worth reading and remembering!
