'More than just one of the best debuts of the year; one of the best books of the year. It should do for Aberdeen what Trainspotting did for Edinburgh' Louise Welsh, Herald

When Janie Ryan is born, she is destined to be the latest in a long line of Aberdeen fishwives.

Ahead of her lies a life filled with feckless men, filthy council flats and bread & marge sandwiches.

But Janie isn't like the rest of them. She wants a different life.

And Janie, born and bred for combat, is ready to fight for it.

Review:

"Colourful, funny, joyful and compelling" ( Observer)

"There's little doubt that this young writer is going to be a star... In the course of this picaresque and haunting tale, Hudson achieves something rare and remarkable. While comparison will inevitably be made between her work and that of Irvine Welsh or Alan Warner, she is wholly individual" (Rosemary Goring Herald Scotland)

"Kerry Hudson’s fine, eloquent debut novel traces the peripatetic childhood of Janie Ryan...her tale is full of warmth and bittersweet humour" ( Financial Times)

"Real and heartfelt... Hudson avoids the usual sentimental clichés and gives us, without a shred of hipster cynicism, the hope and tough warmth for which she has such a sharp eye" (Jenn Ashworth Guardian)

"A gritty, tough, sweet , sad, funny story of urban survival. Recommended" ( Diva)

Book Description:

Winner of the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust First Book Award 2013 and shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award 2012, Tony Hogan introduces an irresistible new Scottish voice…
