The Cone-Gatherers Reviews

"This book is a sheer delight. It never flags and every page makes you want to read the next." Sunday Herald; "A witty, ironic, intelligent and charming novel." Punch; "Jenkins laces his themes of greed and selfishness with plenty of lascivious goings-on. For all the humour, this is also a thoughtful novel and a wry look at 'what a mess folk make of their lives'." The Times; "Always a pleasure to read." Herald"

About Robin Jenkins

Author of a number of landmark novels including The Cone Gatherers, The Changeling, Happy for the Child, The Thistle and the Grail and Guests of War, Jenkins is rapidly attaining recognition as one of Scotland's greatest writers. The themes of good and evil, of innocence lost, of fraudulence, cruelty and redemption shine through his work. His novels, shot through with ambiguity, are rarely about what they seem. He published his first book, So Gaily Sings the Lark, at the age of thirty-eight, and by the time of his death in 2005, over thirty of his novels were in print.
