Dream Angus comes to you at night and bestows dreams. Just the sight of him may be enough to make you lose your heart, for he is also the god of love, youth and beauty.
In twentieth-century Scotland, Angus’s troubled alter ego searches for his true family and identity. A psychotherapist who helps people understand their dreams, his life seems to parallel that of his mythic namesake, until we ask, could they be one and the same?
An absorbing novella weaving together the tale of the Celtic god and the Scottish scientist, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?
Part of the Canongate Myths series; Alexander McCall Smith joins contemporary writers Margaret Atwood, Ali Smith, Philip Pullman and more in re-imagining and re-telling ancient myths.
