As McQuade took out his fish paste sandwiches, he glanced over at Rankin (McIlvanney was busy with his big white hanky trying to mop up the spillage) and asked if he'd written any books he might have read. Rankin, giving McQuade that shifty-eyed look he's become famous for, replied that he'd written one or two.
McQuade offered Rankin the opportunity of an interview saying that it might help him a little with sales. By this time Mr Watson was under the table with embarrassment pretending to look for his car keys...
McQuade promised to through in a few of Mr Watson's CDs, adding that he could always use them as coasters if he didn't like the music.
Rankin obviously thought he'd better agree just to get rid of the daft old bugger, so here's the link .... an interview not to be missed - all the questions that Rankin has never before been asked...and probably never will be again.
