Still everyone enjoys a good excerpt I figure, or at least those that read book reviews and author interviews. With that in mind, here are a few links to some excerpts from author Jason Wilson's Boozehound: On the Trail of the Rare, the Obscure, and the Overrated in Spirits. Enjoy.
Wilson writes about his first teenage liquor experience in The Ombibulous Me.
The Washington Post presents the excerpt: Jason Wilson on becoming a spirits aficionado.
And one last plug for our mighty cocktailian, for a wonderful review, an insightful interview with a talented author, and last, but not least, for turning me on to this highly entertiaing read. Drumroll please...
