William McIlvanney – The Kiln


We are the book, the book is us

More than a read, this is an experience. There is no unscathed escape from this novel by McIlvanney: you exit transformed, with a new, wider consciousness. Because the meanders of the memories of Tom Docherty, the protagonist, in some way or another affect any one of us. And are rooted into our conscience, both personal and collective. Universal.

Translation by Anna Anzani (edited by Chiara Canova and Robert Mardle)
