Reviews of Dream Angus: The Celtic God of Dreams

An enchanting tale * * The Times * * A gem-like piece of work * * Daily Telegraph * * 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 . . . A book that is full of small marvels . . . Resonant and deeply unsettling — John Burnside * * Guardian * * Perhaps the finest I have read from the McCall Smith pen * * Scotsman * * Reads like a fairytale for adults, a light, rose-tinted book . . . Well-written and smartly contemporary * * The Skinny * *
