Dream Angus comes to you at night and bestows dreams - you may spot him skipping across the hills, his bag of dreams by his side.

Just the sight of him may be enough to make you fall in love, for he is also the god of love, youth, and beauty. Divine Angus is cherished by all, but fated to love only the beautiful Caér, swan maiden from his own dreams.

Crafting an ancient myth into a tale fabulously and irresistibly new, Dream Angus is the epitome of McCall Smith's prose, beautifully weighted, sensuous in its expression, deliciously serene.

Five exquisite fables of modern dreamers unfold alongside Angus' search for Caér. Mesmerically weaving together the tales of the Celtic Eros and his contemporary alter egos, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Terzah | 2/11/2014

    " I like my myths (and retold myths) to be deep and mysterious, and moving if at all possible. This little book was too light in its first few chapters, but as I got deeper into it, the stories grew deeper too. The author weaves retellings of the myth of Angus, the Celtic god of dreams, with contemporary short stories in which the characters grapple with issues and situations in which dreams play a role. The last chapter was particularly good. "

    " This is an interesting collection of short stories that weave the mythical story of Dream Angus with contemporary stories that have a dream theme. Worth reading. "

    " This is also a series of short stories re-telling the stories of the Dream Angus mythology. I like the way Smith uses a contemporary story to offset the mythlology that flows in here. It is a quick read and would recommend this to any Smith fans. "
