4 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Robert Macgregor on January 12, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A startling first novel from Scottish writer Andrew Linzee Gordon. The title hints it will be a book of no mean ambition, but to tackle God, Love, Death and Alcohol so thoroughly in a single tome excuses its unfashionable length.

Linzee Gordon writes with a fluidity of language and ear for the vernacular that flows like a northern river in spate. There are elements of caricature reminiscent of Beerhohm, and occassional Landseer-like sentimentality, but the most original voice which emerges is that of a cerebral traveler, ever questioning the whirly gig of fate. All this is tempered by a diverting and astringent wit.

In addition to being most apparently a love story, in an almost courtly tradition, it is also a eulogy to a place (Aberdeenshire) and way of life (clannish,hierarchical) that is fast disappearing.
