Hugh Provan was a Modernist hero. This collection of essays tells the story of that period in our cultural and political life. Through the reported essays that first made O'Hagan's name, it's a book filled both with personal story and the power of documentary witness. Opening with a major personal piece examining the journey of Britain and America since the closing of the Thatcher years, it concludes with a piece of reportage telling the story of a British and an American soldier who died in Iraq on the same day in 2006. A fascinating, important and timely collection from a hugely important essayist.
Shortlisted for the Booker Prize, Our Fathers is a powerful reclamation of the past from one of Britain's most accomplished literary novelists. Hugh Bawn, modern Scottish hero and legendary social reformer, lies dying in one of the high-rise tower blocks he helped establish. His grandson Jamie comes home to watch over him, and it is Jamie who tells the story of their family, of three generations of pride and delusion, of nationality and strong drink, of Catholic faith and the end of the old left

Our Fathers is a book about politics, religion, urban regeneration and decay, and identity, both personal and national. Andrew O'Hagan has got inside the psyche of the west of Scotland male and created a story which lays it bare; the anger, violence, repressed emotions, disjointed relationships, unfulfilled dreams but also the sensitivity and love that occasionally creeps through in unguarded moments. There are three generations in Our Fathers.
