Fallen Eagles : Rites of Passage

Regular price £8.99 £0.00

The title story, Fallen Eagles, is a Hamlet-inspired story about a Scottish boy who loses his idolised mountaineer father in an accident and blames his uncle to such an extent that he contemplates murder. Other stories take us to the French Revolution, the First World War and to more contemporary situations such as coming out, shaking off the parental yoke and exploring old and new love. Each story explores the diversity of young people's experience as they emerge into adulthood and the wide-ranging themes are both contemporary and relatable to the modern reader. Fallen Eagles has been produced to raise funds for Huntington's Disease Youth Organisation (HDYO), a charity close to the hearts of Bruce and his partner, following his civil partner's diagnosis with Huntington's Disease in 2016. "There is strength and warmth, toughness and kindness in these stories, making up a collection that is spirited and uplifting." Alison Moore, author of Booker Prize short-listed novel, The Lighthouse (Review for Odds Against)
