Here's what you say about us...

Bernard MacLaverty lives in Glasgow, Scotland. His books include Lamb, Cal, and Grace Notes, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and won the Saltire Scottish Book of the Year Award.

A formidable fictional triumph.

Miraculously vivid precision…[MacLaverty] is a born novelist.

To fashion a short, telling novel out of the hideous complexities of Northern Ireland takes narrative skill of a high order. In Cal Bernard MacLaverty has managed to do it superbly.




Cal is a hard, dark gemstone of a book.
