This provocative, lyrical novel chronicles the misadventures of an idiosyncratic young Scotsman cartwheeling further and further into a Hebridean hell, railing against the constraints of his extraordinary but vanishing island culture as well as western civilization in general.
Set in the heart of the Atlantic-battered archipelago of the Outer Hebrides - Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis - it marks the fictional debut of a writer whose poetic sensibility in all its refreshing eloquence, candour and wit shines through in prose that is compelling, controversial and deeply affecting.
