'[Sins of the Father] has a sombre intelligence rare in current fiction ... Allan Massie treats evanescent joys and enduring, terrible questions with a patient art that begins to feel like life' - The Independent 'The ingenious and understated manner in which Massie treats the unforgotten and unforgiving makes this a tense and credible work' - The Times 'Challenges easy assumptions and skilfully explores complex moral dilemmas' - The Daily Telegraph 'This is a novel of ideas; not a twentieth-century one topped off with rereferences to sub-atomic physics, but a nineteenth-century novel of moral idea' - Independent on Sunday

About the Author:

Allan Massie, one of Scotland s foremost literary figures, was born in Singapore in 1938, grew up in Aberdeenshire and read history at Cambridge. He has published 23 works of fiction and nine of non-fiction, which include a string of highly successful historical novels.
