The Wet and the Dry: A Drinker’s Journey by Lawrence Osborne
Reading about one man’s experience drinking in bars in foreign countries may be just the thing to start the year. Whether or not it’s your cup of tea, one thing is sure: Lawrence Osborne is excellent and witty company for this erudite travel narrative. From London to Milan, Pakistan to the Malaysian border and beyond, Osborne brings us with him into dim and sometimes dangerous environments, and always exits with a story and at least most of his faculties intact.
