Swing Hammer Swing!
Swing Hammer Swing! | Jeff Torrington
2 posts
From the infamous Glasgow slum, the Gorbals, Tam Clay chronicles a week in his life, in the last days before the demolishers move in. Intersecting friends, old-timers and eccentrics, navigating his pregnant wife, frisky bedfellows and debt collectors, Tam stumbles through a derelict world on an odyssey of self-discovery. Wildly funny, outlandish and insanely ambitious thirty years in the writing Torringtons pulverised 60s Glasgow is crammed to the crevices with a blizzard of his unique and insatiable genius.

I heard about this book on a radio 4 book programme where celebrities praised there favourite comic novels. I enjoyed the dark comedy and the dialect with a picture of a 1960's Glasgow probably now demolished by the eponymous hammer. And from my gr review i gave it 4*.
