This strikingly original short story tells the story of a Glaswegian man's alcohol fuelled evening. This story boldly experiments with the protagonist's diction, as the author presents us with a daring voice which incorporate the exactitudes of a Glaswegian accent. At first, this accent can be jarring but once the reader becomes accustomed to this fascinating voice the storytelling becomes incredibly rewarding.

Not content with just providing us with a unique voice, the author also provides us with a fascinating tale of excess that stays with you long after you have read this story.

If you are looking for an exciting new voice in contemporary fiction you need to read The Waster's Tale.

I enjoyed reading the story in the tongue of the narrator. Seemed unnecessary to repetitiosly use the c-word.
very unique writing style.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, the "c" word usage was excessive. It was a true waste of time and that is why I never bothered to finish it.
