The Sound of My Voice

(1987)
A novel by

 
 
Morris Magellan has a house in the suburbs, nice wife and kids. But Morris is also a chronic alcoholic, heading fast towards self-destruction. Morris is not hoping to meet Ms. Right and acquire the two kids that will straighten everything out. He already has all this and it hasn't kept him off the bottle. Ron Butlin's tale of one man's inner turmoil is haunting, harrowing, yet strangely uplifting; a masterpiece from a neglected Scottish writer.

    

Praise for this book

"Playful, haunting and moving, this is writing of the highest quality." - Ian Rankin

"One of the greatest pieces of fiction to come out of Britain in the 80's... Butlin's book is a stylistic triumph." - Irvine Welsh
