"This novel chronicles the misadventures of an idiosyncratic young Scotsman cartwheeling further and further into a Hebridean hell, railing against the constraints of his extraordinary but vanishing island culture as well as western civilization in general." "Set in the heart of the Atlantic-battered archipelago of the Outer Hebrides - Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis - it marks the fictional debut of a writer whose poetic sensibility shines through in prose that is controversial and deeply affecting."--BOOK JACKET

On an island like no other, populated by writers, the annual Brilliant & Forever Festival is a much anticipated event; its participants a story away from either glory or infamy. This year, three best friends - two human, one alpaca - are chosen to compete, so victory is not only about reward. This is a novel like no other; a wonderful, provocative tussle, a whip-cracking, energetic, laugh-out-loud satire on what we value in culture, and in our lives. And yet, written with exquisite warmth and empathy, it's also a moving exploration of integrity, friendship and belonging. It'll split your sides and break your heart

The house was extraordinarily peaceful as if by an act of will I had banished all the fertile ghosts. It had an unearthly calm as if I were floating on a dumb sea of solitude. I found myself humming to myself as if I had come to the silence of myself. I went to the bookcase and took out a book and began to read. Strangely enough I didn''t realise at first what book it was. Then I saw that it was the Bible. I turned to the New Testament and began to read, ''In the beginning was the Word ...

When the breathing got worse he went into the adjacent room and got the copy of Dante. All that night and the night before he had been watching the dying ... When a mirror was required to be brought she looked at it, moving her head restlessly this way and that. He knew that the swelling was a portent of some kind, a message from the outer darkness, an omen. - The Dying ALTHOUGH BEST KNOWN as one of Scotland''s greatest modern poets, Iain Crichton Smith was also prolific as a writer of short stories.
