Magpies and Sunsets
James McPherson has made a huge success of his new life in a new country. He has a thriving business, a wife and three daughters, a beautiful home, a public image, and a private shame. A voice from his secret past, a voice calling from thousands of miles across the Atlantic Ocean in the thick dialect of the Edinburgh gutters haunts him. So he returns to his native Scotland to confront his personal demons and exorcise the evil memories that bedevil him. Can he ever recapture the simple, guiltless pleasure of watching Magpies and Sunsets, forgiving the past and laying its ghost once and for all? In a magnificently crafted and courageous book, Neil Marr makes no concessions to the English language as he throws his reader into the deep end of heavy, rough, tough dialect. A delight for all Scots, a journey of adventure for millions of expatriate Caledonians around the world and a challenge to all Sassenachs!
