In Riding the Elephant, Craig regales readers with new essays, rendered in the voice fans have come to love. In lyrical prose that is at once hilarious and unexpectedly moving, he discusses his deep love for his native Glasgow, the psychological changes of fatherhood, and looks at ageing and mortality with a perspective that he was incapable of as a younger man. Each story is strung together in a colourful tapestry that ultimately reveals a complicated man and the personal progress he s made. For fans of Craig, comedy, and inventive storytelling, Riding the Elephant is a must-read memoir.

Praise for Riding the Elephant "Ferguson is a natural storyteller, sharp-witted and acutely observant of his surroundings. He's capable of maintaining a light touch yet his stories often transcend whatever humorous incidents may occur. Collectively, they serve as often poignant meditations on the long journey toward his late-middle-aged self. An entertaining memoir by a humorist who has gained enlightening insight into living an authentic life." --Kirkus Reviews "Humorous and heartfelt (often on the same page), Ferguson is a great story-teller, whose signature irreverence and comedic timing translates perfectly to print." --Library Journal "As the title implies, the reader is along on a wayward and memorable journey." --Booklist "A smart, humble, and witty memoir." --Publishers Weekly
