Small Scale Tour

By Caroline Ross

"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" Philip Gross

Fiction, Novels



Ham is resting – 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 – 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

"Ross's novel is a tragi-comic tour de force, expressive, exuberant and poignantly reflective: I found it compulsively readable."
Stevie Davies

"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
