Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dream Angus comes to you at night and bestows dreams - you may spot him skipping across the hills, his bag of dreams by his side. Just the sight of him may be enough to make you fall in love, for he is also the god of love, youth, and beauty. Divine Angus is cherished by all but fated to love only the beautiful Ca?r, swan maiden from his own dreams. Crafting an ancient myth into a tale fabulously and irresistibly new, Dream Angus is the epitome of McCall Smith's prose, beautifully weighted, sensuous in its expression, deliciously serene. Five exquisite fables of modern dreamers unfold alongside Angus's search for Ca?r. Mesmerically weaving together the tales of the Celtic Eros and his contemporary alter egos, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?

Synopsis:

Angus is one of the earliest Celtic deities and one of the most beloved. Son of the Dagda, the chief of the Celtic gods, and Boann, a water spirit, Angus is the god of love, youth, and beauty. He is a trickster and a romantic, a combination of Eros and Apollo. He is much loved by women and a breaker of hearts. He will reveal to you in a dream your true love, if asked, and if in the mood. Around his head there are four birds fluttering - each of which is a kiss. In Alexander McCall Smith's retelling, five different young men named Angus find themselves living the myths of Angus, from his search for the girl he loves to his discovery that the man who raised him is not his father. In the hands of one of the great storytellers living today, Dream Angus will charm and mesmerize listeners.
