Publisher's Summary

Fergus MacFarlane is a celebrated photographer partying in the heat of noughties London. One night he returns home to discover ugly cracks in his life: his past and his present are catching up with him. Who is he really? How did he get here? Fergus was eight when his fisherman father drowned, leaving him in a damp tenement with his mother - and her resentment. In the wild landscape, Fergus searched for a way out. Follow Fergus from scabby-kneed schoolboy to ambitious artist, from a squat to a mansion, from Hebridean islands to Hoxton galleries, from Presbyterianism to hedonism. Why did Fergus run from his past? And how does he get back?

What the Critics Say

"A perfect mixture of light and dark, with scene-setting and characterisation so effortlessly done that you almost forget you are reading a book at all." (The Times)
"This novel is an enjoyable read: acutely and amusingly observed, with some clever twists and turns." (Daily Mail)
"Muir demonstrates keen insight...West Coast is an easy, enjoyable read. Only the hard of heart will find themselves unengaged by Fergus's life story, or unmoved by the novel's denouement." (Guardian)
