Reviews

Readers of the book are indulging in a spot of nostalgia. THE HERALD MAGAZINE

Inspiration for the book came from a chance encounter he had while working as a volunteer driver for a local hospice. One day his passenger was a lady who told him about her colourful time as a conductress on the Glasgow buses. Her stories formed the basis for the heroine of his novels, Big Aggie MacDonald, who dishes out no-nonsense patter to fare dodgers, drunks and cheeky weans alike. THE HERALD

There's no darkness to Allan Morrison's brand of nostalgia, needless to say: his past is uncomplicated, full of cheeky chippies on Glasgow's trams were "people spoke to one another", shared their sweeties and their stories. THE HERALD

Morrison peppers his reflections with some interesting facts - the middle classes complaining to newspapers about the behaviour of the "lower orders", and the "no spitting" signs during a period when TB was a real threat, hint at possible darkness, but this is quickly dispelled. THE HERALD

Allan's book is selling well and featured at the recent 'Aye Write' Glasgow book festival, were he spoke to a packed audience about it. GREENOCK TELEGRAPH
