NEAR NEIGHBOURS introduces an eccentric world very like our own, peopled by characters who live for football, music and sex but who are also monopedes, cross-gender doppelgangers, window-fetishists or sock-throwers. A master of broad farce and the paranoid monologue, Gordon Legge looks obliquely at life and returns it to us all with its grim hilarity, sadness and humanity restored. Gordon Legge's first collection of stories, IN BETWEEN TALKING ABOUT THE FOOTBALL, was hailed by the New York Times as a 'cult classic'. With this, his second, he joins the ranks of Irvine Welsh, Alan Warner and Duncan Mclean as one of the most exciting and original of the new Scots writers.
