Anne Marie’s Da, a Glaswegian painter and decorator, has always been game for a laugh. So when he first tells his family that he’s taking up meditation at the Buddhist Centre in town, no one takes him seriously.

But as Jimmy becomes more involved in his search for the spiritual his beliefs start to come into conflict with the needs of his wife, Liz, and cracks begin to form in their previously happy family.

Written in fairly broad Glaswegian the insightful Anne Donovan is great with her characters. Each one has a distinctive voice and perspective. One little choice after another shows how life can change dramatically, and not necessarily for the better, even if those choices are well meant or understandable.

All our lives can be messy at times, and this book represents that really well. It’s very funny too.
