This review is from: The Cone-gatherers: A Haunting Story of Violence and Love (Canongate Classics) (Paperback)
There is a warmth and decency about this book that compensates for its over-schematic and simplistic political agenda. Cleverly structured. Even the most damaged character, Durer, one feels for. It is not surprising that it is a standard text for Scottish pupils and in my experience one that is almost always appreciated and enjoyed. Not comparable, it seems to me, with "Sunset Song", but a thoroughly worthwhile read nonetheless.
