Researching McIlvanney is a distinguished critical overview of William McIlvanney's oeuvre. Professor McLuckie establishes the centrality of McIlvanney's Remedy is None, A Gift from Nessus, and Docherty to his subsequent development as a writer and social conscience. The engagement with literary and cultural politics in Scottish writing is followed by an exhaustive annotated bibliography of primary and secondary material. This second part to Researching McIlvanney defines the field and opens up new scholarly possibilities.

This book was a pleasing interlude while we wait for McIlvanney's next novel, collection of short stories, poetry or essays. The introduction does a great job of situating McIlvanney. The bibliography points us to works we may have missed while we wait . . and wait . . . for the great man's next book.
