Salmon Fishing in the Yemen: The book that became a major film starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt



What readers are saying:

'Loved it!' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

'My favourite book' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

'One of the most wonderful books I have ever read' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

'Stunningly funny' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is the story of Dr Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist - for whom diary-notable events include the acquisition of a new electric toothbrush and getting his article on caddis fly larvae published in 'Trout and Salmon' - who finds himself reluctantly involved in a project to bring salmon fishing to the Highlands of the Yemen - a project that will change his life, and the course of British political history for ever.

With a wickedly wonderful cast of characters - including a visionary Sheikh, a weasely spin doctor, Fred's devilish wife and a few thousand transplanted salmon - SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN is a novel about hypocrisy and bureaucracy, dreams and deniability, and the transforming power of faith and love.

'Warmly recommended to anyone searching for feelgood comedy with surprising bite' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
