  • "With this novel James Kelman reveals a talent so huge in today's terms that one is tempted to mention Zola and Beckett"

    Independent
  • "His style is endlessly inventive, his characters have huge souls and his point of view is uncompromising. If people don't start listening, they only have themselves to blame"

    Observer
  • "Kelman has artistry, authenticity and a voice of singular power. A Disaffection leaves one reassured and indeed optimistic about the state of British literature today."
