The Man Who Walks by Alan Warner

The Man Who Walks

Alan Warner

Alcohol, sex, drugs, violence, madmen, aristocrats, travellers, criminals, film crews and Scotland's bewitching scenery. An odyssey of a nephew in search of his uncle, or more accurately, in search of the £27,000 in the uncle's knapsack. But how does the cow get into the entrance hall of the big house? What more could you want?

Extract

The Nephew was lain silent atop the paper sacks of pony nuts near the roof of the agric supply warehouse, dreaming about ghost bags, when his mobile diddled 'Rule Britannia, Britannia rules the waves'.
