A novel based on the award-winning play
Magrit, Dolly, Doreen and Mrs Culfeathers are the lifeblood of their Glasgow community and the steamie is at the centre of their world. Now, in Tony Roper's bestselling novel, you can follow their story once more, meet new characters from their lives and get to know more about their husbands, their families and the friends they rely on in troubled times. These are the men and women from the shops, shipyards, bookies and street corners, and this is their story.
“The gossip at the steamie is as endless s the piles of dirty washing.”
THE SUNDAY POST
«The Steamie, a word-of-mouth hit that transcended its Glasgow origins to become a success from America to Latvia.”
“Like the stage show, the book is filled with unbeatable Glasgow humour, but it is peppered with beautiful observations of life and tinged with some deeply moving moments.”
