Book Description

1 Aug 2007
This is James Kelman's first collection of short stories - as fresh and sharp as when they first appeared from US publisher "Puckerbrush Press". Set among the tenements and bedsits of Glasgow, they shine a light on the exploits of young and old. James Kelman had been writing since about 1967 and by 1971 had enough stories for a book. In 1973, "An Old Pub Near The Angel" was published and the rest is history. The US edition has never been out of print.
