Synopsis

The Girl on the Ferryboat by Angus Peter Campbell

I loved her from the moment I saw her, and that love has never wavered. It has encased every choice I have ever made, and I have never done anything in my life which didn't involve her image somewhere...I'm so sorry for it all This is the latest English-language novel from award-winning Gaelic poet, novelist, journalist, broadcaster and actor, Angus Peter Campbell, and the first to be published simultaneously in Gaelic and English.

Reviews

'exceptionally good novel. It is among the best pieces of narrative literary fiction to have emerged from Scotland in the 21st century, in any language.' 'an extraordinary achievement, by the increasingly excellent and advernturous Luath Press...and by Angus Peter himself' 'beautifully written' '[can] be read simply as a love story' 'the gorgeous bittersweet tone'
