Some of the exhibits dont always stay behind bars. On other fronts, his love-life is going nowhere in particular- and theres something else calling him.

Its to do with the sea, or, at least, being able to navigate - a skill his ancestors had to possess. But he hasnt quite worked that one out.This is the first fictional work by one of Scotlands leading guide-book writers - so, perhaps inevitably, the book is firmly rooted in the landscapes of Scotland - especially the sands and sea-spray of the east coast - that also happen to be some of the authors favourite places. Funny, poignant and evocative, Dogskin Boy also suggests that what we remember from earlier times, what we are told about our forebears, and even what we dream, can sometimes blend together.

(There, Im sure that isnt too pretentious.)In short, its very readable and a good companion for a visit to Scotland
