The Big J by Andrew Murray Scott (Paperback) (ISBN: 9781904246336)

'Beautifully drawn... compels the reader... Robbie and the enigmatic Big J will stay with you for a long time' EILEEN RAMSAY

When strangers like 'the Big J' come into small towns on the edge of the sea, they will be noticed. And for Robert Strachan and his crowd, the Big J stands out anyway - ultra-cool and a little bit older, someone to look up to, someone to imitate. He has a motorbike and the poise of a born leader. But then an innocent summer romance goes terribly wrong...

Full of lively humour and evocative local detail and set against the drama of the red sandstone stacks and hidden beaches of the Scottish North East coast, soundtracked by seagulls, The Big J is a read that is hard to set down.

ANDREW MURRAY SCOTT was born in Aberdeen and is now based at Broughty Ferry where he lives with his wife Frances.

He graduated in English and Modern History and his first novel, Tumulus, won the inaugural Dundee Book Prize in 1999, being described as 'a tour de force, the work of an extremely talented, confident, sophisticated and imaginative writer'. He has written two further novels, Estuary Blue and The Mushroom Club, as well as a number of nonfiction books.
