After 15 years in prison, Tommy Hunter decides to put right the misery he has heaped on his family by bringing them back together - at the point of a gun.

Product Description

Details

Fifteen years ago, Tommy Hunter committed a terrible crime. Now pursued by his own bad memories and the attentions of his criminal companions of the past (as well as the present-day curiosity of the boys and girls in blue), Tommy is trying to put his family back together by the unlikely means of kidnapping them with the added allurement of a bag of stolen money. Moon Country is a wild and woolly Scottish Western, a family road movie, a slightly insane hermeneutic treatise on nationhoodand belonging, and a definitely lunatic quest for personal redemption. It's also pretty funny. It is quite unlike anything you've ever read before.Peter Arnott has squared the circle by combining the demotic, the entertaining, the literary and the chaotic all within a surprisingly ordered structure. This is a book that stays with you once you've finished reading it: the many connections continue to emerge.
