The Holy Father

(2012)
A Novella by

 
When young Scots carpenter Joe is visited by the Wing Wizard Davie Cooper one Christmas Eve he gets the shock of his life - his partner is to give birth to a king that very night. Setting off through their scheme - guided only by an unusual, yet familiar, constellation - Joe and Mary-doll soon discover their shared passion for the opposing ends of the Scottish football terraces unites them in ways they could never have imagined.

The Holy Father is a 7,000 word short story delving into the divisive nature of Scottish football, told in the raw Scots tongue, and delivered in a familiar festive setting.

Praise for The Holy Father:

'A masterpiece. It's like Jim Thompson and Irvine Welsh got together to write a Tony Black story.'
Barry Graham, author of THE WRONG THING
