James Kelman’s triumph in Kieron Smith, boy is to bring us completely inside the head of a child and remind us what strange and beautiful things happen in there.
Here is the story of a boyhood in a large industrial city during a time of great social change. Kieron grows from age five to early adolescence amid the general trauma of everyday life — the death of a beloved grandparent, the move to a new home. A whole world is brilliantly realized: sectarian football matches, ferryboats on the river, the unfairness of being a younger brother, climbing drainpipes, trees, and roofs, dogs, cats, sex, and ghosts.
This is a powerful, often hilarious, startlingly direct evocation of childhood.
