    1. I’ve a lot of time for William McIlvanney and I’ve read quite a bit of his stuff (even if I’ve not got round to updating to reflect that) but for some reason I’d never got round to Docherty. I’ve had a copy of The Kiln in my possession for years but kept putting off reading it until I’d read Docherty which I think was a wise thing although your could read them the other way round.Docherty just bowled me over. No one writes like McIlvanney and gets away with it. He piles metaphor upo [...]


    2. This was a life changing book for me. Taught me what it was to be a man, from Ayrshire and I loved it.


    3. Description: Tom Docherty was seventeen in the summer of 1955. With school behind him and a summer job at a brick works, Tom had his whole life before him. Years later, alone in a rented flat in Edinburgh and lost in memories, Tom recalls the intellectual and sexual awakening of his youth. In looking back, Tom discovers that only by understanding where he comes from can he make sense of his life as it is now.


    4. Philosophy delivered as soliloquy in phrases which make the heart sing, make you laugh out loud at insights into absurdities, make you gasp and think again in recognition of aspects of yourself, your life, mistakes you may have made and inward and outward journeys taken. As ever, eminently, quietly satisfying.


    5. Sublime writing as always by McIlvanney. Possibly not the easiest book to read at times, but captures the period fantastically and the turmoil of life for a 17YO growing up to be a man in 1950's West Scotland.



    6. I loved this. One of those moments I wished for half stars so I could bump it up a bit. My first from this author and it's one of his most recent. I'll now go back and look for the early ones.
