The Wee Book of Calvin : Air-Kissing in the North-East Paperback

Description

A collection of essays and aphorisms about Scottish Calvinism.

This is Scottish literary humour at its finest.'A work of contemporary shamanism, with all the bluff, poetry, deranged humour, sleight-of-hand and real magic that implies.' Don Paterson.

This is the first (and maybe the last) self-help guide that promises to make you feel a lot worse after you read it. A hilarious satire on freeze-dried mysticism and off-the-shelf enlightenment, it is also a haunting and lyrical reflection on places, voices and memories -- a literary journey into the heart of North-East darkness. 'A perfect evocation of Scotland's mysterious love affair with loss and sorrow.

A powerful dram of Zen Calvinism.' Richard Holloway
