Bamkirk, Scotland, the road to nowhere. No wonder the recently bereaved and angrily disenchanted alcoholic Jock MacTavish has his eye on independence. Salmond will deal with the English, and all the rest who conspire to drag Scotland through the mire of servitude and poverty. But while Jock has one eye on freedom, ‘Ghandi', his Asian GP, has an eye on his liver…
In a hilarious novel of sectarian politics, racism, alcoholism, poverty, and, yes, love, John Murphy spins a heartfelt tale of the turning around of Jock MacTavish. Told in a broad Scottish dialect (well worth the trouble to understand) Jock MacTavish Freedom Fighter for an Independent Free Scotland mixes rheumy-eyed sentimentalism with biting Scottish wit in a winner-takes all knock out fight towards a bright future.
