Ever wondered what some of the weirdest productions of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe have been? Has it crossed your mind that you don't actually know which Scottish city has the honour of being twinned with the Russian town of Piskov (mind you don't drop that, now)? If so, then this is the book for you. Crammed fuller than a haggis, Jim Hewiston's Scottish Miscellany is jam-packed with lists, tables, top tens, recipes and bizarre phenomena relating to oor braw wee country. But there's more! Did you know, for example, that our ludicrous saying 'A midge is as big as a mountain, amaist' is possibly outdone in terms of ridiculousness by Bulgaria's 'Dry pants catch no fish'?
