His persistent creativity for a half-century makes this Scottish writer worthy of the greatest respect throughout the English-language world.' — Paul Binding, Guardian 'Let me alert everyone to the best-kept secret in modern British literature … if you are interested in books that are humane and wise, not slick and cynical; then treat yourself this year to some Robin Jenkins.' — Andrew Marr 'Many people can produce a novel, but very few are authentic writers whose sentences and paragraphs give intrinsic pleasure. Jenkins is one of them.' — J. B. Pick 'Jenkins [is] a remarkable writer whose gentlest touch induces the greatest of pleasures.' — The Times Poverty Castle is an absorbing work of contrasts and subtle irony centred around an idealistic family in Argyll. A compelling novel, it deals with human nature, as always with Jenkins, and the socialism of industrial Glasgow.
