Revue de presse :

'WEEKEND builds layer upon layer, beguiling the reader as it surges into something transcendental...challenging, illuminating and thought-provoking'

(Irvine Welsh, Guardian)

'A poignantly funny variation on a French farce...wonderfully witty and wistful'

( Daily Mail )

'WEEKEND is Chekhovian in its unspoken moments and hard-won affirmations' ( Daily Telegraph)

'So accomplished and thoughtful, so maturely reflective and insightful, it rises triumphantly to match, and possibly exceed, his work that came before.'

( Herald)

'Everything in the novel is illuminated by the play of a subtle, sceptical and yet affirmative intelligence...remarkable'

(Allan Massie, Scotland on Sunday )

Présentation de l'éditeur :

In a Victorian mansion hotel on a Scottish island, a group of English Literature lecturers and students from Glasgow gather for a study weekend, though studying is not exactly what some of them have in mind. And the weekend does prove to be a major turning point in the emotional lives of several people - just not quite in the way any of them expected.

As entertaining as it is thought-provoking, William McIlvanney's novel brilliantly illustrates the essential conundrum of human nature - that we are driven by animal instincts, but have the mental capacity to analyse, harness and rue them. Which also means we continue to dream, even when our dreams fail us.
