Robin Jenkins bring to life a variety of characters in this intriguing, compassionate novel: twins Jonathan and Maddy are desperate for something significant, something creative to happen in their lives. They become passionately involved with John, an aggressive, working-class Glaswegian painter, and beautiful Barcelona student, Montserrat, whose brother is an imprisoned Catalan patriot. All of them are caught up in a sort of sardana—a Catalan dance performed for pleasure and as a symbol of unity.‘His persistent creativity for a half-century makes this Scottish writer worthy of the greatest respect throughout the English-language world.’ PAUL BINDING, THE GUARDIAN ‘Let me alert everyone to the best-kept secret in modern British literature … if you are interested in books that are humane and wise, not slick and cynical; then treat yourself this year to some Robin Jenkins.’ ANDREW MARR ‘Many people can produce a novel, but very few are authentic writers whose sentences and paragraphs give intrinsic pleasure. Jenkins is one of them.’ J B PICK ‘Jenkins [is] a remarkable writer whose gentlest touch induces the greatest of pleasures.’– THE TIMES
