Stuart Adamson book - front cover

“An overdue tribute to a visionary musician and honourable man” – Keith Cameron, MOJO

“A fascinating story that will appeal to more people than just those who are fans of his music … [Stuart Adamson – In A Big Country] is a celebration of a man who cared too much, someone who wasn’t able to turn the emotion off. Listening to those early records again while reading In A Big Country made me realise that Scottish music misses him more than it realises”- Alistair Braidwood, DEARSCOTLAND.COM To read the full review, click here

“This biography presents a critical perspective not only of Adamson’s music and its wider influence, but also of the excesses of fame and the music business as it really is” – THE SCOTS MAGAZINE

“[This] intimate study of a true Scottish original has already been acclaimed by Bruce Springsteen. To say that we’re with ‘The Boss’ on this one would be a huge understatement. A superb book about a man who was as talented as he was under-appreciated” – THE GRID. To read the full review, click here
