Our Fathers

As Hugh Bawn lies dying his grandson Jamie comes to watch over him, and narrates the history of their family, a history bound up with nationality, religion, socialism and strong drink. Our Fathers was Andrew O’Hagan’s first novel, and was short-listed for the Booker Prize in 1999. ‘The tang of truth, the irreducible core of humanity, lies like a shock in the shuddering heart of this great fiction début’ wrote Tom Adair in Scotland on Sunday.
