Review

Alan Warner''s Morvern Callar may be the first novel that deserves its own soundtrack. The music Warner''s title character listens to as she drifts aimlessly through her sterile life may be the most worthwhile part of this depressing novel. Following in the footsteps of Trainspotting, another Scottish tale of anomie in the Highlands, Morvern Callar chronicles Morvern''s dead-end existence--a joyless round of sex and raves punctuated by the music playing through her portable stereo.

Warner tells this dreary story from Morvern''s point of view in a voice that is flat and affectless, as if the girl''s soul had died years before though her body continues to function. Morvern Callar is a strange mix of shocking and banal, a mélange with appeal for a very specialized audience.

Short Desription

A leading voice of a group of Scottish writers influenced by the Beats presents his first novel, a shocking look into the life of a working-class Scottish girl who turns to drugs and rock music to find meaning in her world.
