About this book
The devastating new novel from the highly acclaimed author of "God's Own Country". It traces the journey of Mick Little, an ordinary man, from the Glasgow shipyards to the crowded, sweating kitchens of an airport hotel, to the streets and riversides of London. It is an intense and moving novel about family, about work and the lack of it, about love and grief. 'Ross Raisin confirms himself as an exciting talent, a unique, gifted and generous voice, a young writer with a vision broad far beyond his years' "Financial Times"
Mick Little used to be a shipbuilder on the Glasgow yards. But as they closed one after another down the river, the search for work took him and his beloved wife Cathy to Australia, and back again, struggling for a living, longing for home. Thirty years later the yards are nearly all gone and Cathy is dead.
