SIGNED FIRST EDITION. This Cheltenham Prize winning collection of short stories contains some of Kelman’s best work. Politically charged and acerbically comic, the 47 stories take place in the betting shops, tenements, and high-streets of Glasgow and Manchester. Titles include “The One with the Dog”, “The Wee Boy that got Killed”, and “Cute Chick”, the latter cited by Alasdair Gray as “The funniest short story in the British Language”.
