Weekend cover

'Illuminating and thought-provoking' Irvine Welsh, Guardian

In a Victorian mansion hotel on a Scottish island, a group of English Literature lecturers and students from Glasgow gather for a residential weekend. The weekend proves to be a major turning point in the emotional lives of several people - just not quite in the way any of them expected.

The great McIlvanney themes - class, guilt, the power of the book, the difficulty of goodness - are all there, seething under the surface -- Stuart Kelly * * Daily Telegraph * *
Remarkable . . . everything in the novel is illuminated by the play of a subtle, sceptical and yet affirmative intelligence -- Allan Massie * * Scotland on Sunday * *
Wonderfully witty and wistful * * Daily Mail * *
William McIlvanney paints a world of harsh reality, but does so in language that is strangely beautiful and hauntingly poetic -- Craig Russell
