Boyracers Summary

Boyracers by Alan Bissett

Since its first publication in 1999, "Boyracers" has established itself as a contemporary Scottish cult classic. It is a totally fresh, savvy and supremely honest take on being young, naive and hopeful, and the pains of living life at hyperspeed in a mad pop-culture world. It is fast, pacy and funny - a breathtaking joyride through the formative years of four Falkirk teenagers.

Boyracers Reviews

'Required reading for those who understand and live its message'

* The Herald *

'A terrific yarn... superb from start to finish'

* FHM *

'One of the best things I've read in ages'

-- Ali Smith

'There is real emotion here, and gutsiness ... a feeling for language so passionate it shames the dullness of so many sentences that make it into print'

* Rosemary Goring *

'A breakneck dash through the back streets of Falkirk ... a comedy, almost a tragedy, a caustic look at what has passed for culture in the last decade'

* The Big Issue *
