A powerful and evocative story of Scottish life through two decades. It tells the story of men and women’s lives in Scotland. Although the characters in this book are dissimilar outwardly, These characters share a common inner factor-loneliness. The characters come to believe that McPhail Pinkmon possesses what they have been groping for in their lives. The book is a novella of intent that Calum Cumming has written. Like J P Sartre and “Existence is a Humanism” Calum has finally conceded that faith is greater than the mistakes that all human memories consist of.
