About This Author

This author has intriguingly written a novel whose narrator, a student teacher, does not refer to himself at all throughout the story until the very last line; rather, what we the readers are presented with is what the narrator sees and hears. The form of the novel interweaves the narrator's thoughts and observations with the characters’ spoken words.

Fergie Robson is a History teacher from Lanark who lives with his wife Angela and three children Owen, Danny and Jessica.
