Description

CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE BEST NOVELS OF 1998 BY THE LOS ANGELES TIMES AND WINNER OF ENGLAND'S MCKITTERICK PRICE

This award-winning literary tour de force, shortlisted for both the Whitbread and the Booker prizes, tells the captivating tale of three men: Tam and Richie, good Scots lads at heart who have turned loafing into an art form, and their ever exasperated English foreman. Carefully laid plans go haywire from the start, and as they cover their tracks the best they can, the hapless trio heads south from Scotland to do a job in England, where they find that their reputation has preceded them, to say the least.

This outrageous and brilliant tale is riveting from beginning to end, introducing a magnetic new voice.
