Summary

** From the author of Mayflies **

‘A beautiful, elegaic work . . . This should be required reading for everybody.’ Ian Rankin

Shortlisted for the Booker Prize, Our Fathers is a powerful reclamation of the past from one of Britain’s most accomplished literary novelists.

Hugh Bawn, modern Scottish hero and legendary social reformer, lies dying in one of the high-rise tower blocks he helped establish. His grandson Jamie comes home to watch over him, and it is Jamie who tells the story of their family, of three generations of pride and delusion, of nationality and strong drink, of Catholic faith and the end of the old left. It is a tale of dark hearts and modern houses – of three men in search of Utopia.
