The Smiling School for Calvinists

Bill Duncan

“Stories of a Scottish coastal town, Dundee. Not dissimilar to where I grew up in North Berwick. The book offers insights into small town people, dealing with change and modern life.”

Verity Combe , Dublin 8

A collection of tales that alternate between the enclosed, austere fishing community of Broughty Ferry and the implacably encroaching tower-blocks of nearby Dundee. Bill Duncan creates a gallery of characters from both the old world and the new.
