The Disco Boys and The Band are back... In the early 80s, Bobby Cassidy and Joey Miller were inseparable; childhood friends and fledgling business associates. Now, both are depressed and lonely, and they haven't spoken to each other in more than ten years. A bizarre opportunity to honour the memory of someone close to both of them presents itself, if only they can forgive ... and forget. With the help of the deluded Max Mojo and the faithful Hamish May, can they pull off the impossible, and reunite the legendary Ayrshire band, The Miraculous Vespas, for a one-off Music Festival - The Big Bang - on a remote, uninhabited Scottish island? Absurdly funny, deeply moving and utterly human, The Man Who Loves Islands is an unforgettable finale to the Disco Days trilogy - a modern classic pumped full of music and middle-aged madness, written from the heart and pen of one of Scotland's finest new voices. `A real new talent on the Scottish literary scene' Press & Journal `By turn hilarious and heart-breaking, more than anything Ross creates beautifully rounded characters full of humanity and perhaps most of all, hope' Liam Rudden, Scotsman `... carved out an enduring place for himself among contemporary Scottish novelists' Alastair Mabb, Herald Scotland `Warm, funny and evocative. If you grew up in the eighties, you're going to love this' Chris Brookmyre `An astonishing tour de force' John Niven `Full of comedy, pathos and great tunes' Hardeep Singh Kohli
