Publisher's description. A madcap Highland adventure about midlife crises, new friends, and second chances. Douglas Findhorn Elder is fifty years old, recently dumped and suddenly jobless. Mungo Forth Mungo is a talking toad. And as luck would have it, this toad is determined to help his hapless human chum to sort his life out... * Penguin *
Joyful, warm-hearted, funny ... but buried within are serious points about the stories we tell about ourselves, how history shapes our identity, scarred landscapes and self-selecting communities. In heartsore times we need more books like this. * Guardian *
Funny and fun ... To Be Continued manages to be sad and happy at the same time. You can engage with the post-modern games and references if you like, or you can just sit back and laugh, and cry. A Scottish baroque novel, full of tricks and trinkets, written with warmth and wit. * The National *
Robertson manages to skilfully join the quirky with the serious; the surreal with the real. His take on contemporary Scotland is insightful, eccentric and highly readable. * The Scotsman *
To Be Continued, with its harem-scarem scenarios and surreal twists, was written to entertain. * Sunday Herald *
A wildly eccentric tale laced with dry, deprecating wit * The Times *
