Preferred Lies: A Journey into the Heart of Scottish Golf : Andrew Greig, poet, novelist, and lapsed golfer, came within moments of death before his surgeon performed a last-ditch operation and saved his life. Inspired to pick up his clubs again after a thirty-five-year on-and-off again hiatus from the game, Greig traveled eighteen courses on his road to recovery - from the northernmost tip of the Orkney Islands to the celebrated fairways of St. Andrews. It was, more than anything, a journey toward reconnection with being alive. Greig's book tells one man's story of connection to an ancient game, and the story of a father's relationship with his son and the rite of passage into manhood. It is a book of reflections, not only on the pleasures of the game but also on friendship, family, and ghosts from the past.
