Description

Luath Press, 2018. 262 pages. Paperback.

Colin Quinn spent the summer of 1978 with his uncle, Ruairidh Gillies, on South Uist. While the world at large and many in the islands watch football in Argentina – didn’t Ally MacLeod say Scotland would win the World Cup ‘nae bother’? – two ‘Barra’ men deepen their relationship. Throughout these intense summer days and weeks, of almost forty years ago, we share the main characters’ growing intimacy and mutual understanding at joyful times and while facing some major challenges.
In their company we enjoy the pristine beauty of the southern isles and feel the wrath of the elements when their mood changes.
