Read in April, 2007

O'Hagan shows a unique slice of Scottish contemporary history- the Italian community that has both integrated into and been held apart from Scotland's cultural identity. He wraps this into a story of a budding celebrity in the 1970s. The voices are a bit distant, but there is enough wry and loving humor to make the characters sympathetic and the story an engaging read.
