Dream Angus

“McCall Smith brings to the Angus story a sly and deceptive simplicity, combined with a charm that has a line of tight, sharp wire running all the way through it.” John Burnside, Guardian

“… perhaps the finest I have ever read from McCall Smith’s pen.” Tom Adair, Scotsman

” a gem-like piece of work, slim and polished, and written in a very different voice from any of his other novels.” Toby Clements, Daily Telegraph

Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell…

If he’s in the right mood, divine Angus might grant you sight of your true love in a dream; you might even fall in love with him — but he’ll never love you back. He’s too busy making mischief — stealing the palace of the gods from his father, turning his enemies into pigs etc — until he is trapped by his own romantic games and falls for an unattainable woman, doomed to seek her forever.

In twentieth-century Scotland, Angus’s troubled alter ego searches for his true family and identity; a psychotherapist who helps people understand their dreams, his life seems to parallel that of his mythic namesake, until we ask — could they be one and the same?

Mesmerically weaving together the tales of the Celtic god and the Scottish scientist, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?

    I had never heard of Angus before, but this book is a really fun story. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the Myths series.
