Mo Said She Was Quirky, Paperback (July 2013)» View all books by James Kelman
Her boyfriend said she was quirky but it was more than that. Some things were important in life. You had to fight for them. Helen was prepared for that - only she wasn't as strong as people thought. Working nightshift as a dealer in a London casino didn't help. Her young daughter at home in bed - just how safe was she?
UK Kirkus Review » Booker Prize Winner in 1994. A grim tale recounting a week in the life of the narrator, Sammy, an ex-convict who becomes blind after he has been jailed and questioned by the police after a drinking spree. One of Kelman's aims is to give authentic voice to working class Scotland and to this end the novel, like his others, is written in a scatologically brimming Glaswegian vernacular which gives pause to the London literati whom he so despises. When one of his previous novels, A Disaffection, was nominated for the Booker, he was disparaged on the TV broadcast as being 'Billy Connolly with philosophy': he is far more than that. (Kirkus UK)
