'Like Docherty, another masterpiece' The Scotsman
AS SEEN IN THE BIG MAN STARRING LIAM NEESON
The big man is Dan Scoular, a legend of physical prowess in a decaying Ayrshire mining community. When a bare-knuckle fight offers both money and a purpose, he finds it turns into a monumental struggle to keep his heritage and integrity intact.
Inspiring and harshly funny. As in Orwell at his fiercest best, McIlvanney's outrage is all the more potent for being tranquil. Grand fiction that reads as truly as fact * * Mail on Sunday * *
A vivid transcription of a small town and the people who live there . . . Wry, funny, tender, largely unsentimental and very readable * * The Times * *
Confirms his reputation as the most incisive observer of working-class Scottish life * * Guardian * *
