His experiments in vernacular Scots push and twist the language, sometimes to breaking points. And his work is humorously interested in the question of what constitutes a story: he likes tales in which nothing happens, twice, thrice, and beyond. His strongest work is in the short story rather than the novel, where the immersion principle can make for work that seems relentlessly long. By contrast, his short stories are often very short—he is fond of brief dramatic monologues, sometimes only a page or two in length—and present vivid fragments, barely comprehended moments.
Here it is, entire:. This man for fuck sake it was terrible seeing him walk down the edge of the pavement. So all we could do was watch his progress and infer. And even under normal circumstances this is never satisfactory: it has to be readily understood the types of difficulties we labored under. Then that rolling manoeuvre he performed while nearing the points of reference. It all looked to be going so fucking straightforward. How can you blame us?
What is being inferred, exactly? The working-class Glaswegian author knows exactly how his words will scathe delicate skins; he has a fine sense of attack. A few other cunts use them as well. The reader begins to hear the prose as well as read it, ideally allowing its Glaswegian rhythms to speak through the phrasing. In subject and theme, it insists on an absolute materialism.

Two before going into the pub; three in it; then this was the second since leaving. Which makes seven. He put the plug in the sink and turned on the hot water tap, shoving his hand under the jet of water to feel the temperature change; it was still a novelty. But, alongside this materialism of subject and language words as things, weapons, counters , Kelman insists on the play and the liberty more often glimpsed than found of the mind.
Pritchett and Henry Green. This was these fucking books he read. Why did he read such shite. Sammy has our sympathy for becoming blind, but once he starts alienating people all around, swearing at doctors and generally refusing to co-operate with anyone even Ally, who seems perfectly trustworthy and honest, he proves infuriatingly frustrating.
Sammy was married once, right after his first term in prison. It's true that the main character, Sammy, sometimes gives way to a vernacular of spectacular indignation 'Fuck yer coffee and fuck yer tea and fuck yer fucking milk if yer fucking lucky enough to fucking have fucking any of the fucking stuff man know what I'm saying'. NY: W. But as I get older I find myself less and less patient when it comes to reading books written in dialect. Sammy dictates his thoughts in working Scottish dialect, which includes frequent usage of obscenity. He also purchases a pair of sunglasses to cover his eyes. Related Information.
Strangely, however, the end of the book ends on a note of curious optimism, even though we are sure that Sammy is going to find things no easier in London than he has in Glasgow. No doubt our compassion for and connection with Sammy is mainly established by the use of interior monologue as outlined above.
Almost as soon as he learnt to write, he handed his parents a note which read: "I wish to become a painter. His career as a clerk was short.
