A paen to the working man. McIvenney's novel is a family saga set in the coal mining area of Ayrshire. The purpose is to celebrate the culture of the working class without sentimentality or condescension. A target perfectly achieved in this slightly one-noted, no tricks, novel but done with a great eye for detail and depth of feeling and morality expressed in actions rather than words.
