Product description

Review

If you lived through the early Eighties this book is essential. If you didn't it's simply a brilliant debut novel.' --John Niven

'The result is a mounting sense of tension as the book moves towards its conclusion. Does real life ever deliver happy endings: and is David F. Ross going to give us one here? You'll have to read the book for yourself to find out the answer to the second part of that question. The Man Who Loved Islands is the third book in a trilogy. If, like us, you've not read the first two parts of the trilogy, don't worry: it stands on its own merits and can be highly recommended on that basis.' --Undiscovered Scotland

'By turn hilarious and heart-breaking, more than anything Ross creates beautifully rounded characters full of humanity and perhaps most of all, hope. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It's rude, keenly observed and candidly down to earth' --The Scotsman

About the Author

David F. Ross was born in Glasgow in 1964 and has lived in Kilmarnock for over 30 years. He is a graduate of the Mackintosh School of Architecture at Glasgow School of Art, an architect by day, and a hilarious social media commentator, author and enabler by night. His most prized possession is a signed Joe Strummer LP. Since the publication of his debut novel The Last Days of Disco, he's become something of a media celebrity in Scotland, with a signed copy of his book going for £500 at auction, and the German edition has not left the bestseller list since it was published.
