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.

Jenkins is one of them.’ J B PICK ‘Jenkins [is] a remarkable writer whose gentlest touch induces the greatest of pleasures.’– THE TIMES
