It Stance to Reason: The Intelligent Rabbit’s Guide to Golf

John Desmond Sheridan was an Irish novelist, short story writer, and humorist. He was a frequent contributor to the Irish Independent newspaper.

So when you read the line ” So I beat him (the man from Kenya) 5 down and 13 to play” you really get the sense that this opus to self-deprecation is more of an apology for rabbits (golfing) rather than an uplifting tale of redemption.

This enlarged edition was reprinted in 1963 and contains new material ‘Seventh: Thou shalt not steal’, ‘Women Golfers’, Sunday Morning Golfers etc. There is also a ‘variant first edition’ which has a green cover and which I don’t consider the actual first for two reasons; the price on the variant edition is 5′- net compared to 3/6 on the original.
