Anyone interested in the global culture of drink will be captivated by Lawrence Osborne's travel narrative... Mr Osborne is a perspicacious, knowing guide, and a maker of arrestingly beautiful sentences -- Rosie Schaap * New York Times * Funny and provocative -- Scott Bradfield * Times Literary Supplement * His travels and his erudite understanding of drink make a good read -- Douglas Osler * Scotsman * Transcends mere travelogue: leached out, amused, slightly weary...The result is one of those 'but' books that insert an awkward little wedge into the Western media's otherwise monolithic and cliched view of Islam. -- James Hamilton-Paterson Mr Osborne is a superb travel writer, one who, like Evelyn Waugh, can size up a locale at almost a glance. This intoxicating book has political as well as sensual overtones -- Dwight Garner * New York Times *
