Description

From its bravura opening onwards, THE CROW ROAD is justly regarded as an outstanding contemporary novel.

It was the day my grandmother exploded. I sat in the crematorium, listening to my Uncle Hamish quietly snoring in harmony to Bach's Mass in B Minor, and I reflected that it always seemed to be death that drew me back to Gallanach.

Fabulous stuff, what can I say about such an iconic writer-the opening is so well written it certainly makes you want to read on. A classic.
