Someone Always Robs the Poor

by Carl MacDougall
£9.99   paperback  Freight Books (2017)

Someone Always Robs the Poor by Carl MacDougall A long-awaited new collection of stories from one of Scotland’s most acclaimed writers.
 
A young man returns from London, facing the prospect of reunion with a young daughter he’s never met. A woman recounts her family’s doomed attempt to emigrate from Poland to America 70 years before. A creative writing tutor is shocked by the story of one of his students, who is connected to a past atrocity in Bosnia. A former architect fights a losing battle with alcoholism and the ghosts from his past.
 
Here is a new collection of brilliant stories from the multi-award winning elder statesman of Scottish literature, exploring themes of poverty, migration, alienation, accountability and alcoholism, with an impressive depth and emotional range.
