At a time when Glasgow's position as European Cultural Capital is attracting publicity, this book tells a different story - that of Glasgow slum life. At the centre is the towering figure of Henry's father, John McInnes, a reader, a thinker, a convict, a railroad bum - whose romantic rebelliousness dominates the book and gives a true flavour of an authentic working-class hero.
