A dazzling new Scottish voice.

When Janie Ryan is born, she’s just the latest in a long line of Ryan women, Aberdeen fishwives to the marrow, always ready to fight. Her violet-eyed Grandma had predicted she’d be sly, while blowing Benson and Hedges smoke rings over her Ma’s swollen belly. In the hospital, her family eyed her suspiciously, so close she could smell whether they’d had booze or food for breakfast. It was mostly booze.

Tony Hogan tells the story of a Scottish childhood of sordid council flats and B&Bs; screeching women and feckless men; fags and booze and drugs; and bread and marge sandwiches. It is also the story of an irresistible, irrepressible heroine; a dysfunctional family you can’t help but adore; the absurdities of the 1980s; and the fierce bonds that tie people together no matter what. Told in an arrestingly original and laugh-out-loud funny voice, it launches itself headlong into the middle of one of life’s great fights—between the pull of the past and the freedom of the future. And Janie Ryan, born and bred for combat, is ready to win.
