Final Payments

Mary Gordon

Welcome to 44 Scotland Road, residence to a few of Edinburgh’s most colourful characters. There’s Pat, a twenty-year-old who has not too long ago moved right into a flat with Bruce, an athletic younger man with a eager consciousness of his personal look. Their neighbor, Domenica, is an eccentric and insightful widow. Within the flat beneath are Irene and her interesting son Bertie, who’s the sufferer of his mom’s need for him to study the saxophone and Italian — all on the tender age of 5. Love triangles, a misplaced portray, intriguing new mates, and an encounter with a well-known Scottish crime author are only a few of the elements that add to this pleasant and witty portrait of Edinburgh society, which was first printed as a serial in The Scotsman newspaper.
