Tom Shields Goes Forth

Front Cover
Mainstream Pub., 2000 - Humor - 192 pages
This is yet another collection from Tom Shields' column as a diarist from The Herald, before old age and infirmity forces him to early retirement. A compendium of fun, insult, and malapropism, Tom Shields Goes Forth delves irreverently into every aspect of Scottish society. Like the author's newspaper diary, this is a quirky, witty commentary on life as we know it. Casting a scrupulous eye over the humdrum aspects of society that we mere mortals take for granted, Tom Shields revels in the inconsistencies and incongruities—and other longish words—of everyday cultural artifacts.
