Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed In Search of Burningbush is a beautifully written true-life story of an unlikely friendship between two men with nothing in common except a consuming and abiding passion for the links. Michael, a successful young journalist, and Don, a middle-aged card dealer with brittle-bone disease, go to Scotland in search of the mystical course "Burningbush". As Don struggles with his physical challenges, Michael struggles to keep the game, and life, in perspective.


What the Critics Say

"The border between fact and fiction is amusingly vague here, to the enjoyable entertainment of fans of Kingdom, one of the most popular golf novels ever." (Booklist)

Golf good, characters fine, prose overblown and leaves little to the imagination, performance cloying

And there it is. And you say everyone's a critic? For what it's worth, yes, I am that.

Didn't want it to end.

Would you listen to In Search of Burningbush again? Why?

Yes, this was one of the best books I have ever listened to. It was produced well, the narrator was excellent. The story was excellent( If you love golf, you will love this book.)
I am just so happening to be playing in Scotland this year and so it made this book that much more special. However I would have enjoyed it either way.

What other book might you compare In Search of Burningbush to and why?

Golf in the Kingdom by Michael Murphy is referenced a lot, and the Missing Link.

What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

Fantastic! He needs to make more books, as he really knows how to narrate a book. He is obviously a professional and understands how to make a book sound as if the author is the one reading..

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

From the opening to the close, I didnt want it to end. I enjoyed this book immensely and plan to listen again.

Any additional comments?
