Magical . . . exquisitely funny . . . evocative
Pithy, colourful, and sometimes very funny . . . anyone who lived through the social and economic upheaval of Glasgow in the 1950s and 60s will find something in Tales from the Back Green that will strike a chord, be it major or minor.
Sharp, funny, unsentimental. Great stuff.
Affectionate, and beautifully written and narrated.
As cosy and comforting as hot buttered toast on a cold winter's morning, and none the worse for that. This unashamedly nostalgic collection is a fine and gentle piece of work.
