The great McIlvanney themes - class, guilt, the power of the book, the difficulty of goodness - are all there, seething under the surface -- Stuart Kelly * * Daily Telegraph * * Remarkable . . . everything in the novel is illuminated by the play of a subtle, sceptical and yet affirmative intelligence -- Allan Massie * * Scotland on Sunday * * Wonderfully witty and wistful * * Daily Mail * * William McIlvanney paints a world of harsh reality, but does so in language that is strangely beautiful and hauntingly poetic -- Craig Russell
