What is it to pursue a goal, to strive for an ideal, to follow a dream?

These are the questions explored by The Balvenie in this unique collection compiled by award-winning novelist Alex Preston. The stories - from some of the brightest and most exciting voices writing today - tell of determination, endeavour and perseverance against the odds. They range across wildly different contexts and cultures, from the epic to the intimate, in fiction and non-fiction, illustrating and illuminating the outer limits of human character and achievement.

With contributions from Max Porter, Kamila Shamsie, Daisy Johnson, Eley Williams, Michael Donkor, David Szalay, Yan Ge and many more.

The Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is crafted by William Grant & Sons Ltd, an award-winning family-owned distiller founded by William Grant in 1886 and still independently owned. It is the only distillery that still grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps both coppersmiths and coppers on site - making The Balvenie the most handcrafted of single malts.
