Small Scale Tour
£8.99 BUY THIS BOOK
Ham is resting Â– if that's what you can call 12-hour shifts in Najib Khan's corner shop. The acting work has dried up, but the shelf stacking and 'wagging of chins' with his eccentric Afghan employer is proving fertile ground for his latest project. Prompted by a desire to make his fortune at last, Ham turns to scriptwriting and finds himself confronting the time, 30 years ago, when it all went wrong.
Love, lust, jealousy and death Â– they're all here in Kicking Theatre's bloodiest production
Wales November 2013 Book of the Month for Waterstones and Independent bookshops
"...a sprightly read and packed with memorable characters."
RM, The Crack
"humorous and perceptive... powerfully evokes that strange, irresistible, infuriating, creative, insecure and often sexually charged world in which a group of young people live hand-in-glove..."
Peter Mortimer, The Journal
"ambitious, delicious, heartfelt. Grave comedy, tender tragedy and modern history play all in one, the scope of this fine book is anything but small... Small Scale Tour is a tremendous performance"
"Ross's novel is a tragi-comic tour de force, expressive, exuberant and poignantly reflective: I found it compulsively readable."
"a corner-shop walk-on character steals the show in this keen observational comedy about artists fighting for the spotlight"
Penny Simpson, New Welsh Review
By the author of the acclaimed War Before Mine:
"Ross proves herself a versatile and sensitive chronicler of the world at war and a bright new star of Welsh writing."
"Keeps you in its grip to the very last page. "
Sarah Bower, The Historical Novels Review
"More than a war story, more than a love story... A slice of living history."
