Book Summary of How Late It Was, How Late

(Paperback)

One Sunday morning in Glasgow, shoplifting ex-con Sammy awakens in an alley, wearing another man's shoes and trying to remember his two-day drinking binge. He gets in a scrap with some soldiers and revives in a jail cell, badly beaten and, he slowly discovers, completely blind. And things get worse: his girlfriend disappears, the police question him for a crime they won't name, and his stab at disability compensation embroils him in the Kafkaesque red tape of the welfare bureaucracy. Told in the utterly uncensored language of the Scottish working class, this is a dark and subtly political parable of struggle and survival, rich with irony and black humor.

Annotation

Winner of the 1994 Booker Prize, this witty, controversial, and brilliant bestselling novel is "a work of marvelous vibrance and richness of character" (New York Times Book Review). When an ex-convict with a penchant for shoplifting becomes blind, his stab at Disability Compensation embroils him in the Kafkaesque red tape of the welfare system.

Editorial Reviews

"How Late It Was, How Late" is a book constructed out of the vernacular speech of a time and place, exactly as, once, Chaucer's tales were. And because it is a good book it has all the authority of the so-called King's English. It is a work of marvelous vibrance and richness of character. . . . Mr. Kelman's Glasgow is vivid and powerfully alive, and his prose is, too. . . . "How Late It Was, How Late" deserves every accolade it gets. -- New York Times
