""Half Scotland sniggered and the other half scowled, when in letters to the "Scotsman" and the" Glasgow Herald," I put forward my suggestion that prisoners in Scottish jails be allowed to wear their kilts as their national birthright if such be their wish.""
From his origins as an illegitimate child in the slums of Glasgow, Fergus Lamont sets out to reclaim his inheritance and to remake his identity as soldier, poet, and would-be aristocrat. Covering the years from the turn of the century to World War II, Fergus's unforgettable voice recounts a tale of vanity, success, and betrayal which shines its own sardonic light on Scotland and the cultural and political issues of the day. At odds with his origins and unsettled in his aristocratic pretensions, Fergus Lamont reaches middle age before he is offered at least the hope of redemption in a love affair with an island woman. How it turns out and what he learns too late, adds a tragic dimension to the scathing humor of this, Robin Jenkins's most searching exploration of the modern Scottish psyche.
