Reviews

A delight: a boisterous, kindly, deep, sweet romp of a thing * Scotsman *
Absolutely beautiful... As far as I'm concerned he's emerging as the William Faulkner of British fiction: somebody who's created a body of work that has not only animated a language but a period and a place... He has this incredible talent -- Andrew O'Hagan
This is the best Scottish fiction since Lanark * Scottish Review of Books *
Morally sensitive, exquisitely written and emotionally mature * Guardian *
If you still haven't read it from last year, Alan Warner's The Deadman's Pedal was out in paperback in this. Read it -- Janice Galloway * Scotsman *
