Those who discover malt whisky quickly learn that the malts made on the Isle of Islay are some of the wildest and most characterful in the malt-whisky spectrum. In PEAT SMOKE AND SPIRIT, Islay's fascinating story is uncovered: from its history and stories of the many shipwrecks which litter its shores, to intimate descriptions of the beautiful wildlife, landscape and topography of the island. Interwoven through these different narrative strands comes the story of the whiskies themselves, traced from a distant past of bothies and illegal stills to present-day legality and prosperity. The flavour of each spirit is analysed and the differences between them teased out, as are the stories of the notable men and women who have played such a integral part in their creation. PEAT SMOKE AND SPIRIT is the last word on Islay and its whiskies.

Die unglaubliche Geschichte lockt viele Gläubige an, aber es gibt auch Zweifler. Schließlich beauftragt man die resolute englische Krankenschwester Lib Wright, das elfjährige Mädchen zu überwachen.

Dieser mehrfach preisgekrönte Roman, von der französischen Presse gefeiert als eine der dichtesten und zutiefst berührendsten Neuerscheinungen des Jahres, reflektiert die Zusammenhänge von Erinnerung, Schuld, Mitempfinden, Pflicht, Würde und dem Ehrgefühl des Menschen. In einer trostlosen, von Sand, Blut und Wind gepeitschten Szenerie, in den düsteren Kellern Algeriens, wo sich Folterknechte um nackte Körper versammeln, hat das Schicksal drei Männer an einen Ort zusammengeführt und in einem Schmerz vereint, der für jeden von ihnen ein anderes Gesicht und eine andere Sprache hat. Vor dem Hintergrund des Algerien von 1957 zieht Ferrari die weissglühende Spur der Literatur jenseits aller Moral hin zur unfassbaren Wahrheit des Menschen, wenn einmal erst die Hölle sich auf Erden eingerichtet hat.
