Summary
Intimate new stories from the Booker Prize-winning James Kelman, bringing 'alive a human consciousness like no other writer can'. A trucker passes through a town he used to know and a local tries to sell him his sister; a couple put their children to bed and hear a loud scratching at the wall; a Principal and his associate examine the dead body before them; a man looks into a mirror and reflects on becoming more like his father. Sparky, touching and brilliantly daring, these stories reveal profound human feeling in the ordinary and the everyday, and are a reminder of Kelman's exceptional talent
