How Late It Was, How Late by James Kelman

One of the greatest works of modern Scottish literature.
Sammy loses his sight in an altercation with off duty police officers and James Kelman sensitively gives a fantastic narrative as Sammy, building labourer, gambler and roughie-toughie.
Brilliant Scots dialect mingle with black humour as the blind man fights every barrier in his way to  a great read.
Aristocratic good for nowts put the book down but this one will provide great humour and insights into the life of a blind chap.
rating 10/10
