«A vivid transcription of a small town and the people who live there . . . Wry, funny, tender, largely unsentimental and very readable»

* The Times *

«Confirms his reputation as the most incisive observer of working-class Scottish life»

* Guardian *

«Inspiring and harshly funny. As in Orwell at his fiercest best, McIlvanney's outrage is all the more potent for being tranquil. Grand fiction that reads as truly as fact»

* Mail on Sunday *
