Book Description:

A modern Scottish classic with a new afterword by Andrew Marr

From the Back Cover:

'If you are interested in books that are human and wise, then treat yourself this year to some Robin Jenkins.'
Andrew Marr

Thirteen-year-old Tom Curdie, the product of a Glasgow slum, is on probation for theft.His teachers admit that he is clever, but only one, Charles Forbes, sees an uncanny warmth in his reticence and in his seemingly insolent smile. So he decides to take Tom on holiday with his own family . . .

On first publication in 1958, The Changeling confirmed the reputation of an author who had long been regarded by his peers as a major force in British writing, and it is now held up as a classic of British literature.

'One of the best, most completely realised of Jenkins' novels.'
Alan Spence

'Quite simply a major writer.'
Herald

'A delight to read.'
Times Literary Supplement
