Allan Morrison's penchant for collecting couthy Scots sayings over the years has resulted in a rich seam of books over the past five years. This latest is no different as Allan has given dad's their chance to have their say in this surefire bestseller. 'Away An' Ask Yer Mother!' is a compilation of those phrases and sayings which henpecked and harassed (and well-loved) dad's have uttered to their children over the years. Do you remember these classics? 'YE NEED TAE DAE WHIT YE HAVE TAE DAE, AFORE YE CAN DAE WHIT YE WANT TAE DAE!' 'IT'S OK WI' ME IF IT'S OK WI YER MOTHER.' 'NOW, BE GOOD! AND IF YOU CAN'T BE GOOD BE CAREFUL. AND IF YOU CAN'T BE CAREFUL, DON'T CA'IT EFTER ME!' 'EVERYONE IN THIS HOUSE IS ENTITLED TO MY OPINION!' 'JUST WAIT TILL I GET YOU HOME.' It is recommended that you repeat the father's sayings in this book out loud, preferably with a lump in your throat, a slightly red face, a wagging vinger and a loving heart!
We are a small, independent company but that does not stop us from being innovative and original. We publish more whisky-related books than anybody else and we consider that a genre where other publishers follow what we do. We also win awards from time to time and many of our writers are renowned in their fields, such as Wallace Milroy and David Stirk (whisky), Catherine Brown (food and cookery), Cameron McNeish (hillwalking), Jim Perrin and Trevor Braham (mountain literature and both Boardman Tasker Award winners) and Allan Morrison and Rupert Besley (humour).Based in Glasgow our list reflects our situation but we like to cast our publishing vision further afield from time to time and we hope that you will return to see what we are publishing in our forthcoming titles section in the future.
