More About the Author

Robert Douglas retired aged fifty-five in 1994. He intended to paint, write short stories and lie about the house watching old films. A one-off article he wrote about six weeks spent with a condemned man in Bristol prison led to him being told 'You should write'. Three volumes of autobiography followed detailing his life as a miner, dock worker, doss-house resident, soldier, prison screw and survivor. For this debut novel he returns to the lost Glasgow of trams and tenements.

He hasn't painted for years.

Robert Douglas is a master storyteller, I have all his books but his latest is his best yet - if I am not laughing out loud I am shaking with laughter at the daily antics of the folk in Dalbeattie Street.

Words cannot describe a Robert Douglas book, you HAVE to read it!

I now look forward to his next book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this recent novel from Robert Douglas - and absolute 'wee gem', almost as good as his first novel 'Nightsong Of The Last Tram'. A book that you really looked forward to 'getting into' each day.

Almost felt as though I lived in Dalbeattie Street myself, and knew each neighbour personally.

Well done to Mr Douglas - roll on your next book - you have made a Glasgow Girl who was brought up in the 50's very happy!

Having had the pleasure of reading all of the previous works I was looking forward to reading his latest release.
It excelled my expectations, as someone who was brought up in the authors era I could assosciate with the content including the Glasgow humour.
For anyone wishing to purchase I would advise reading his earlier works first chronologically!

yet another amazing book from Robert Douglas. They just get better and better. Laughter, tears and nostalgia (if you're old enough!) The book had me looking up Glasgow trams just to hear the sound they make...........I now understand the 'song'.
Beautifully written.

Thought the first book was excellent bringing back memories of tenement life in Glasgow but this follow up about the residents of 18 Dalbeattie Street ten years on was brilliant. Went through a whole gamut of emotion from laughter to tears but so well written. Would highly recommend this book.

Hard to find the words to describe this book. You just get a feeling of being there amongst the residents of number 18, knowing them and sharing the close with them. Hard to put down and very easy to pick up again. With all the speech written in dialect I even found myself reading with a Glagow accent!!! Reccomend to anybody who wants a good but easy to read book. I'm sure like me, you'll find it ended too soon.

I haven't quite finished reading this yet but I had to write a report on it - it's terrrific, I've laughed and cried with the characters and I've done nothing in the house since I picked it up two days ago because I cannot put it down - there will be no sleep tonight till I finish it.
i love the history, the author has done his homework on this, I love the people, though I live twenty miles south of Glasgow, I know these people, I know the life, they are the people I grew up knowing.
I'll have severe withdrawal symptoms when I close the cover on this book, it will be saying goodbye to friends. More please!!
