    Kindle William McIlvanney ´ Docherty Epub ß ´ docherty kindle, Docherty PDFI’ve a lot of time for William McIlvanney and I’ve read uite a bit of his stuff even if I’ve not got round to updating Goodreads 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 upon metaphor and makes it work It’s the kind of writing that your creative writing teacher would say was a no no and they’d be right because it can go so badly wrong But when it goes right it’s brilliant Coupled with the fact that all the dialogue is in Scots—which is itself a high

    Kindle William McIlvanney ´ Docherty Epub ß ´ docherty kindle, Docherty PDFMixed feelings about this one McIlvanney is a powerful writer; you can tell he's a poet from his rich use of language and metaphor as bit too rich sometimes I feel sure his picture of working class life in western Scotland is accurate and it is vividly drawn It treads the same terrain as Zola's Germinal But there's no plot to speak of and not even that much drama McIlvanney covers events from the point of view of various members of the Docherty family but the book is really about paterfamilias Tam an old style working class hero and hard man The action starts in 1903 with the birth of

    Kindle William McIlvanney ´ Docherty Epub ß ´ docherty kindle, Docherty PDFI'd read this several times since its publication in 1975 when it was very much hailed as the exemplar of the modern Scottish novel Superlatives abounded and I was impressed and moved by it So forty odd years on does it still have that power? My answer is yes up to a point It is undoubtedly well written but occasionally over written the narrator explains and interprets everything it's well done but now perhaps

    Kindle William McIlvanney ´ Docherty Epub ß ´ docherty kindle, Docherty PDFI know I seem to rave about every book I read but this one was the outstanding and maybe the best book I've read in a yearWritten in 1975 about life in and early 20th Century mining village a lot of the characters relationships and scenarios are very appropriate to today's Scotland I dont often become so involved in a book as I was with Docherty but I felt I knew the characters personally and really sympathised with them in times of woe The dialogue and descriptions a lot of which were written in Scots were pithy but elaborate It was a really intelligently written book without the presence of arrogance which I find very prevelant in RushieMcEwan etcIt won the Whitbread award in the 1970s and uite rightfully so
