Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If he's in the right mood, divine Angus might grant you sight of your true love in a dream; you might even fall in love with him ? but he'll never love you back. He's too busy making mischief ? stealing the palace of the gods from his father, turning his enemies into pigs etc ? until he is trapped by his own romantic games and falls for an unattainable woman, doomed to seek her forever.

In twentieth-century Scotland, Angus?s troubled alter ego searches for his true family; a psychotherapist who helps people understand their dreams, his life seems to parallel that of his mythic namesake, until we ask ? could they be the one and the same?

Mesmerically weaving together the tales 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?

Synopsis:

From the beloved, bestselling author of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series comes a delightful addition to the Myths series.

Dream Angus is one of the earliest of the Celtic deities, and one of the most beloved. Angus comes bounding over the heather with his bag of dreams to dispense to those who want them. He is lithe of foot and beautiful - as befits one who is also the Celtic Eros, the god of love, youth and beauty.

Angus is a playful trickster, given to frightening people and cattle. He will reveal to you in a dream your true love, if asked, and if in the mood. He is a romantic, and one of the main stories associated with him is his search for the young woman who had appeared to him in his dreams. Eventually he finds her, but she is under a spell which makes her assume the shape of a bird for a year. Angus changes himself into a swan and the two lovers fly off together.

In McCall Smith's inimitable retelling of the myth, the setting is twentieth century Scotland. Angus is a psychotherapist who helps people understand their dreams, but there are limits to what he can reveal. Mesmerically weaving the modern day with the tales of the Celtic god, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?

From the Hardcover edition.
