Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for OUR FATHERS by Andrew O'Hagan.

"By any standards, OUR FATHERS is a powerful novel. As a first novel, it is very remarkable indeed."
- The Independent (UK)

"O'Hagan makes the heavy light, the ugly near to lovely through an unusual combination of language, poetic in its imagery on the one hand and ruthlessly sharp and contemporary in idiom on the other."
- The Spectator

"I have scarcely read so silvery beautiful a style when it comes to the Scots landscape, nor one so tender about matters of life and death."
- Financial Times

"Hugh Bawn was a modern hero, a dreamer, a man of the people who revolutionized Scotland's residential development after World War II. Now, as he lies dying in one of his own buildings, his grandson Jamie comes home to watch over him. It is Jamie who tells the story of his family, of three generations of pride and delusion, of nationality and strong drink, of Catholic faith and the end of political idealism. It is a tale of darkness amidst the search for Utopia. A poignant and very powerful reclamation of the past, OUR FATHERS is also a clearsighted and beautifully crafted look at public and personal history."
