      Morvern Callar is a story of coming of age, saying goodbye, but eventually also about coming home. The book starts with Morvern coming home from work to find her boyfriend having committed suicide, and her decision not to report his death but rather to hide his body (a choice that becomes strangely understandable, even without an explanation)/5(8). Morvern Callar by Alan Warner, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

      As in the book, music is an essential part of the narrative, serving as an oblique reflection of Morvern’s state of mind. At crucial moments she listens, often rhapsodically, to songs on the Walkman; club music sometimes serves a similar function.   Dr Gaskell's pioneering study of social and economic change in a west Highland parish during the last century has come to be regarded as a classic of local history, a book which raises issues that are still of general and indeed of national importance. But Morvern Transformed is more than a study Author: Philip Gaskell.
