In her hugely acclaimed debut Anne Donovan tells an endearing, humorous yet unsentimental story of a working-class Glaswegian man who discovers Buddhism, rejects old habits and seeks a life more meaningful, only to alienate his immediate family in the process. Moving seamlessly between three family members, Donovan's clear-eyed, richly expressive prose sings off the page. Each character's voice has its own subtle rhythm and the conclusion is a poignant mixture of hope and lingering reservations. Buddha Da is a delight from one of Britain's best writers.

“A quirky and amusing read in Scots”

I found this to be a quirky and amusing read - at times it was touching. It is a little bit saucy, a few swear words and mention of sex (although nothing greatly explicit), so I wouldn't recommend it to very... More

“Great Scots read. A Glaswegian Painter and decorator explores Buddhism against the fluctuations of family life”

Buddha Da was an engrossing and quick read, written in Scots. The characters drew me in immediately and despite their all having their flaws, I actually liked and sympathised with all of them.
