Product description

Review

Wonderful, brilliant, panoramic, illuminating. A joy to read (Irvine Welsh Guardian)

Gripping, vivid, beautifully realized (The Times)

Powerful and moving. A brilliant and multifaceted saga of Scottish life in the second half of the twentieth century (Sunday Times)

Toweringly ambitious, virtually flawlessly realized, a masterpiece and, without a doubt, my book of the year (Daily Mail)

Big, ambitious, intricately organised . . . it's some achievement (New Statesman)

Dizzying . . . subtle and profound . . . And The Land Lay Still reads like an alternative history of Scotland told by its everyday people instead of its movers and shakers . . . eminently readable (Independent on Sunday)

Both epic and domestic, it delivers a wonderful lifelikeness (Scotsman)

A hugely ambitious and compassionate novel . . . a jam-packed, dizzying piece of fiction . . . already it's being spoken of as the most important novel about Scotland since Lanark (Scotland on Sunday) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
