How can a book be so desolate, heartbreaking and bleak yet so beautiful, vivid and gripping?
Young Mungo lives on a Glasgow council estate surrounded by poverty, sectarianism, toxic masculinity and violence. He loves his alcoholic mum too much, fears his gang-leader brother and idolises his sister who just wants to escape this hopeless life.
Two timelines are skilfully woven together: Mungo’s life in Glasgow and a fishing trip his mother sends him on with 2 strangers she’s met at AA.
It’s all so beautifully written - the lyrical prose, the real characters, great dialogue. It deals with trauma, abuse, and brutality but soaring through it, is the hopeful love of Mungo and James, and the ties which bind us all together.
Gritty, angry and raw; it’s the saddest most beautiful thing. Read this book!
Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC. All views are my own.
I also bought my own copy!
