Format: Hardcover
award-winning poet kevin macneil's first novel is already an underground hit in the uk. it tells the tale of a troubled artist who has grown up in the western isles of scotland and of how he does and doesnt cope with the world around him.

written in a sharp and succinct voice, the language is beautiful. one can see the poetic sensibility in the writing. the style is snappy and funny; kevin doesnt use ten words where one will do. it is not showy but a delightful, hilarious and thought-provoking examination of a darkness in the soul.

highly highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I found it by accident one rainy afternoon in Seattle. I read it , and re read it and bought it for everyone I knew. This is kind of book that Freshmen English lit and writers should read. I laughed and cried and the characters stayed with me , even three years later.

Thank you Mr. McNeil for writing one of the best books I have ever read.
