Back cover blurb

`It was the day my grandmother exploded. I sat in the crematorium, listening to my Uncle Hamish quietly snoring in harmony to Bach's Mass in B Minor, and I reflected that it always seemed to be death that drew me back to Gallanach.'

Prentice McHoan has returned to the bosom of his complex but enduring Scottish family. Full of questions about the McHoan past, present and future, he is also deeply preoccupied: mainly with death, sex, drink, God and illegal substances...


Why you should (or shouldn't) read this book...

'Riveting... exhilarating... its pace, development, intensity and, above all, its hip and sexy humour never allow it to flag. With The Crow Road, Banks reinforces his credentials as one of the most able, energetic and stimulating writers we have in the UK' Time Out

'Beginning with a bang and ending with an exclamation mark, Iain Banks tenth book in eight years would seem to confrim his position as the enfant explosif of the Brit pack' Scotland on Sunday
