Review:

"If you are interested in books that are human and wise, then treat yourself this year to some Robin Jenkins" (ANDREW MARR)

"A remarkable writer" (The Times)

"A delight to read" (Times Literary Supplement)

"If you have not read Jenkins, this witty, affecting novel, which wears its political convictions lightly, is a wonderful place to start" (Financial Times)

"A poignant study of deprivation and alienation" (Times Educational Supplement)

"The Changeling is one of the best, most completely realised of Jenkins' novels . . . the novel's real strength lies in the way its naturalistic surface is shot through with those moments of vision, dream, and ultimately nightmare . . . its reissue is long overdue" (ALAN SPENCE)

"Jenkins is quite simply a major contemporary writer" (Herald)

"Robin Jenkins is the most outstanding novelist that Scotland has produced since the war" (COMPTON MACKENZIE)

Book Description:

The modern Scottish classic; a heartbreaking, tragic portrait of an unexpected relationship. Introduced by Andrew Marr
