ABOUT THIS BOOK
PUBLICATION DATE: March 21, 2011
By (author) Alan Bissett
Since its first publication ten years ago Boyracers has established itself as a contemporary Scottish cult classic. It is a totally fresh, savvy and supremely honest take on being young, naive and hopeful, and the pains of living life at hyperspeed in a mad pop-culture world. It is fast, pacy and funny – an exhilarating joyride through the formative years of four Falkirk teenagers. Alan has contributed an Afterword to this special anniversary edition.
