9780099268765: The Deadman's Pedal

Winner of the James Tait Black Fiction Prize

For 16-year-old Simon Crimmons there is not a lot to do. Going nowhere, fed up with school, he leaves to work as a driver on the trains. That summer he is introduced to a world of grown-up glamour, strikes and girlfriends. When Simon falls for the ethereal, aristocratic Varie, he finds freedom and adventure but will it be at a price? Too 'posh' for the railways, too 'working class' for Varie, Simon must navigate what it means to be a man as his world is turned upside down.

Review:

"A delight: a boisterous, kindly, deep, sweet romp of a thing" ( Scotsman)

"Absolutely beautiful... As far as I'm concerned he's emerging as the William Faulkner of British fiction: somebody who's created a body of work that has not only animated a language but a period and a place... He has this incredible talent" (Andrew O'Hagan)

"This is the best Scottish fiction since Lanark" ( Scottish Review of Books)

"Morally sensitive, exquisitely written and emotionally mature" ( Guardian)

"If you still haven’t read it from last year, Alan Warner’s The Deadman’s Pedal was out in paperback in this. Read it" (Janice Galloway Scotsman)

Book Description:

Winner of the James Tait Black Fiction Prize this is ‘A wonderful reconstruction of small-town Scotland in the 1970s, a hymn to teenage innocence and an elegy for old industries and the men who worked in them – Alan Warner's best yet’

Herald
