Product description

Review

Strachan sustains strong undercurrents of menace and regret by cutting back and forth: we see Richard then and now, a reclusive designer of computer games holed up in the Highlands, unable to fully shake the stain of bad decisions while still in thrall to a prior, supposedly more exciting version of himself. The fug of student common rooms and bars is expertly conveyed, alongside the clean-washed emptiness of the coast. And although I ve never been interested in playing war games, Strachan makes their creation sound fascinating. --Chris Ross, The Guardian

Ever Fallen in Love doesn t disappoint. A quietly unsettling take on the coming-of-age genre, Strachan s novel avoids the more obvious shock-factor conclusion and instead continually teeters on the edge. Unafraid of the unspoken and the unresolved, the story gets under your skin and lingers there uncomfortably --Lucy Scholes, Sunday Times

'The novel excels at evoking the mind games, the vile but subtly plotted erosion which one driven friend can exert on another. The first-person segments power the narrative, dragging the reader into the layers of tangled dependence as Richard falls foul of Luke s excesses.' --Tom Adair in The Scotsman
