'His masterpiece' Jay Rayner

'One of the best opening lines of any novel... a warm, witty and ultimately very poignant book' Guardian

An outstanding contemporary novel, about which readers say:

'Banks' masterpiece'

'Iain Banks at his best'

'Read this immediately'

'A story full of wonderful characters'

'It was the day my grandmother exploded. I sat in the crematorium, listening to my Uncle Hamish quietly snoring in harmony to Bach's Mass in B Minor, and I reflected that it always seemed to be death that drew me back to Gallanach.'

Prentice McHoan has returned to the bosom of his complex but enduring Scottish family. Full of questions about the McHoan past, present and future, he is also deeply preoccupied: mainly with death, sex, drink, God and illegal substances...

Review:

His masterpiece . . . it's got a beating heart, and you want to keep reading (Jay Rayner Daily Express)

One of the best opening lines of any novel... a warm, witty and ultimately very poignant book (Guardian)

Menacing, dark and very funny (Telegraph)

Banks keeps death in its place, under the boot of wit which knows that the most significant romance can blossom whilst your youngest brother is up to the elbow in Sugar Smacks looking for the plastic toy (Observer)

This is Banks' finest novel yet (Independent on Sunday)

Bank reinforces his credentials as one of the most able, energetic and stimulating writers we have in the UK (Time Out)

The tense horror of the book...is done with considerable imaginative subtlety and a fine touch....This is as fine and ambitious a novel as any from a Scottish writer since the 1960s. It is also unquestionable Bank's best work to date (New Statesman)

Banks has woven a warm and funny story, rich with characters and adventures. An utterly enchanting piece of fiction...it marks a return to his brilliant best (New Woman)

The Crow Road is tight with detail and closer observation and creates a strong sense of a particular period of growing up (Independent)
