Synopsis courtesy of the Scottish Book Trust: – "Set in the imaginary Scottish university town of Inverdoon just after World War I, the book follows Peter ('White-maa'), a restless and ultimately unsuccessful medical student whose studies have been disrupted by active service in the war. He is presented as a force of nature, a man whose good intentions to settle down to his studies and successfully embark upon a life in medical practice are constantly being thwarted by his brawling physicality and thirst for a life of action. From the outset, we sense that Peter's dilemma will only resolve itself in decisive, brutal action - we do not realise quite how brutal this is going to be."
