Winner of the Edinburgh International Book Festival's First Book Award.

'A truly original and enthralling novel. Ivor Punch is a magnificent creation and his story is mischievous, sad, funny and truthful' - Stephen Kelman, BOOKER-SHORTLISTED author of PIGEON ENGLISH

All islands have their secrets.
This one has more than most.

When Fingal McMillan rows out into the Atlantic never to return, his grandson Alexander is left with questions. What really happened to Alexander's mother? Was his grandfather trying to reach The Looming, a rock of local myth? And why have mysterious words appeared on the cliff by the bay?

Alexander is not the only local boy whose origins are clouded by mystery - a mystery which stretches back to Victorian times, when a pioneering travel writer alighted on distant Scottish shores. But will the island give up its secrets? Or will Ivor Punch - the man who links the past to the present - take them to the grave?

“A tale of a fictional legendary local man who packs a real punch”

The first chapter of this book put me off as it featured quite a lot of strong language between the various male characters. However, I carried on reading and I definitely became more keen on it as I read on. Each... More

There's something about stories surrounding islands and the sea, there's a shifting, otherworldly aspect to them that branches out and reconnects again. A cyclical nature to them. "The Letters of Ivor... More
