Protestant Mungo lives with his wayward alcoholic mother and his ambitious older sister in an housing estate in Glasgow. He can't wait to leave and has found a kindred spirit in his Catholic friend James, who keeps prize winning racing birds. Mungo's older brother is the leader of a local gang with a brutal reputation to uphold. When his mother sends Mungo on a fishing expedition with two complete strangers his life is changed irrevocably and sets off a chain reaction of events. Douglas Stuart's new novel is devastatingly brilliant and explores the concept of masculinity in an age of intolerance. Dan
