Product description


Deftly drawn and perceptively observed (Daily Mail)

Exquisitely pared down prose by a writer who really feels for her characters and the tainted lives they are living (Glasgow Herald)

Captivating . . . further proof of Seiffert's enviable talents as a writer (Daily Telegraph)

Intelligent and sophisticated . . . a sharp-eyed look at one corner of modern Europe in flux (The Times)

Brilliantly compelling and powerful work, told in beautiful, lean prose (The Economist)

Seiffert's writing is both tightly controlled and almost orchestral in its sweep. You feel every emotion deeply (Irish Independent)

Deeply moving . . . As heart breaking as it is heart warming, this delicate and powerful novel will stay with you long after the final page (Irish Examiner)

Seiffert has a superb ear for language . . . full of intelligence, heart and compassion (Scotland on Sunday)

Unsparing, thoughtful and immaculately researched . . . Seiffert has a fine ear for Glasgow speech and an even better eye for images . . . a rich, nuanced portrait of a changing community . . . beautifully, sparely rendered (Guardian)

The soul of The Walk Home, Rachel Seiffert's new novel, is its setting, Glasgow. The city's streets, housing schemes and tenement blocks provide not merely a backdrop, but history, colour and life (Financial Times)

Book Description

A powerful novel, set in Glasgow, about a young man who fights with his longing to go home, by the author of the Man Booker shortlisted novel, The Dark Room.
