- Book Details
Provides the study of the novels of James Kelman, Scotland's influential contemporary prose artist and 1994 Booker Prize winner. This title offers readings of Kelman's style, characterisation and linguistic innovations within the diverse contexts of Scottish socialism, 'Booker Prize' culture and Glasgow's 'City of Culture' status in 1990.
In response, this study is boldly self-critical, and questions the validity and values of its own methods. Kelman is shown to be deftly humorous, assiduously ethical, philosophically alert and politically necessary.
