Product description

Review

Amande's Bed is at once a Sunset Song for Aberdonian townies, a Doric Roddy Doyle. and a Joycean delight in wordplay and multi-consciousness. It's a memoir, a dream, a document, a quietly tragic comedy, wildly diverse yet unified - a daring and significant achievement. --Andrew Greig, The Scotsman

. . . bold and exteremely accomplished; big-hearted, clear-eyed and quick-witted. . . an elegy for what has been lost and still points to what might be. --Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday

startling. . . deeply bawdy. . . witty. . . hilarious, dark, sweet, crowded and alive. In the end it moved me to tears. --Ali Smith, The Guardian
