«A pitch-perfect blend of warm lyricism, limpid observation and excruciatingly funny comedy. It is a beguilingly brilliant portrait of the artist as an adolescent»

* Sunday Times *

«On almost every page it offers matter for reflection and the sudden stab of emotion that comes from reading something that is truly evoked or created . . . It is rare and it is wonderful»

* Scotsman *

«McIlvanney plumbs, in language of luminous precision, the tortured psyche of the Scottish character. It's Greek tragedy, hilarious to boot»

* Mail on Sunday *

«The best novel yet from the finest Scottish writer of our time»

«Delightfully funny . . . [McIlvanney] is a compassionate writer and leaves an impression both of high seriousness and great charm»
