"Glasgow writer Ewan Morrison takes on the mantle of responsibility of writing a serious book about sex and carries it off with great success. It's difficult to believe that Swung is his first novel. It boasts a narrative control and sureness of touch... that would induce envy in many more experienced novelists... Swung is a beautifully crafted, completely realised and often inspirational book. It announces Morrison as one of the most interesting and exciting voices to emerge in Scottish fiction in recent years" -- Irvine Welsh * Guardian * "Genuinely groundbreaking... Morrison is one of the most gifted and accomplished writers to have emerged in recent years" -- Irvine Welsh "The best book on sex since John Updike's Couples. Ewan Morrison's brave, dirty, utterly honest account of the psychological side of swinging is a complete delight" -- Matt Thorne "Though sex is its language, this is a novel about ageing and settling and messing things up again, with heart enough to make it hurt" -- Hepzibah Anderson * Observer * "Swung is a book of real ambition, a wide ranging exploration of human needs that starts from the most unexpected of websites" * Herald *
