" The joy if bourbon drinking is not the pharmacological effect of C2H5OH on the cortex, but rather the instant of the whiskey being knocked back and the little explosion of Kentucky U.S.A. sunshine in the cavity of nasopharynx and the hot bosky bite of Tennessee summertime- aesthetic considerations to which the effect of the alcohol is, if not dispensable, at least secondary." I couldn't have said it better. In fact i couldn't have said it at all. This small shot glass of a book is filled to the brim with great writing. First appearing in Esquire in 1975 Walker Percy has given us a fun, and funny, excessively smart slug of Bourbon lore. Percy must have knocked a few down while writing, as I was after receiving this book, having a couple of fingers of Four Roses small batch while reading it. Percy, walks us through his personal history with the drink of choice from 1926 through the books publication, and probably beyond. Book is as new, a superb copy, in a blue marbled jacket, with a very slightly cock-eyed label ( too much research). Book is limited to 230 copies, this is # 45 and signed by a possibly sober Percy. A serious collectible for any serious "mash" man or woman. Bookseller Inventory # 000977
