Found on EBay — Parkey Sharkey

Parkey Sharkey A copy of “Whiskey Road” by the incomparable Parkey Sharkey has been listed on EBay. Sharkey was a frequent presence in Paul Coates’ columns and many readers suspected that Coates fabricated Sharkey’s letters. Not at all. Sharkey was an actual person, but a rather eccentric one.

“Whiskey Road” is sometimes described as a book, but it’s really a pamphlet and much of it consists of Sharkey’s letters to Coates.

This copy is signed and is accompanied by a wine list from the Skywood Lodge. I think Sharkey would approve. Bidding starts at $27.95.
