Nae expectations

by Gary McNair | 19 October 2023
PAPERBACK
How do I even start? It's a mental story. Ah know, Ah know, everyone says that - 'ma life's pure mental'. But honestly - a guy drowns, a man eats a live pigeon (though Ah might no have time for that), a woman gets set on fire, right before my eyes! But before we get tae aw that, Ah should tell you ma name. Right. So, ma name, is. . . Pip. Pip is just your average wee guy - happy with his lot and not much of a complainer (though you really wouldn't blame him if he was!). Regularly tortured and terrified, in what is, it must be said, a truly hard life, he still finds time to laugh, smile and dream of a brighter future, even though no-one expects anything of him. Or so he thinks. . . Nae Expectations is Gary McNair's fresh look at the Dickens classic, with a Glasgow tongue and a gallus spirit. Follow young Pip as he battles with monstrous adults, the class system and, most of all, his inner demons as he tries to work out who he is, what he wants to be and how to find his own way in the world. This edition was published to coincide with the world premiere at Glasgow's Tron Theatre, in October 2023.
