Publisher's Summary

James Kelman, the Man Booker Prize–winning author of How Late It Was, How Late, tells the story of Helen—a sister, a mother, a daughter—a very ordinary young woman. Her boyfriend said she was quirky but she is much more than that. Trust, love, relationships; parents, children, lovers; death, wealth, home: These are the ordinary parts of the everyday that become extraordinary when you think of them as Helen does, each waking hour. Mo Said She Was Quirky begins on Helen’s way home from work, with the strangest of moments when a skinny, down-at-heel man crosses the road in front of her and appears to be her lost brother. What follows is an inspired and absorbing story of twenty-four hours in the life of a young woman.

Quirky indeed

Very odd story. It's more like a stream of consciousness than a book. Not the best I have listened to

Terrible narration 🙄

Love James Kelman but could not listen to this, awful mismatch, whoever thought Molly Elston was the right choice needs their bumps felt !
