New PDF release: Coming Home: My Grand Adventures in a Wee Country


All roads lead again home.

Billy Connolly could be a citizen of the realm, yet in his center he is by no means been faraway from his place of origin. Coming Home is Billy's distinct and intimate portrait of his local Scotland, a love letter to the areas and other people that made him.

It's an experience encouraged by means of a unmarried incident: the instant Billy acquired his Knighthood and was once requested 'How does it suppose to have accomplished all this in case you got here from nothing?' His reaction used to be, 'But I did come from something!' So starts an odyssey in the course of the Highlands, Lowlands and the Barrowlands on a shaggy puppy quest to determine what that 'something' was once and if it is nonetheless there.

Far from a customary travelogue, Billy’s quest is as a lot via his thoughts and stories because it is thru his tours, with a chain of key artefacts prompting recollections – a primary urgent of a Hank Williams album (the first list he ever owned), Landseer’s Monarch of the Glen, a bottle of air that recreates the odor of the previous Glasgow Docks – every one of which motivate moments of mirrored image, pleasure, drama and laughter.

Accompanying a massive BBC television sequence, Coming Home is Billy Connolly's insightful, relocating and extremely humorous account of the stuff that actually issues. family members, love, intercourse, healthiness, soccer, fishing, paintings, paintings, swearing, banjos, pals, going to the pub. And stable tea.
