You Have to be Careful in the Land of the Free

by James Kelman

James Kelman does not believe in taking hostages. This is a book that hits you straight between the eyes, and demands that you pay proper attention. A worthwhile, wonderful read, but take your time or you will lose the plot.

In which case he might even have purchased said records from a pawnshop. So it wasnay him that brought the records from Skallin in the first place!
