Review:

This is an outstanding novel of immense power, and is Kelman's best yet. --The Independent

Synopsis:

This title provides the first full-length study of the novels of James Kelman, Scotland's most influential contemporary prose artist and 1994 Booker Prize winner. It offers readings of Kelman's style, characterisation and linguistic innovations within the diverse contexts of Scottish socialism, public transport, emigration, 'Booker Prize' culture and Glasgow's controversial 'City of Culture' status in 1990. It argues against the prevalent critical view of Kelman as a miserable realist and produces evidence that he is acutely aware of an unorthodox, politicised literary tradition which transgresses definitions of what literature can or should do.
