Publisher's Summary

Dream Angus comes to you at night and bestows dreams - you may spot him skipping across the hills, his bag of dreams by his side.

Just the sight of him may be enough to make you fall in love, for he is also the god of love, youth, and beauty. Divine Angus is cherished by all, but fated to love only the beautiful Caér, swan maiden from his own dreams.

Crafting an ancient myth into a tale fabulously and irresistibly new, Dream Angus is the epitome of McCall Smith's prose, beautifully weighted, sensuous in its expression, deliciously serene.

Five exquisite fables of modern dreamers unfold alongside Angus' search for Caér. Mesmerically weaving together the tales of the Celtic Eros and his contemporary alter egos, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?

What the Critics Say

"An elegant contemporary reworking of the ancient Celtic myth of the dream-giver god, Angus, familiar from Yeats's poetry....He is nicely reimagined in this spare, polished work." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "A Simple and Quick Read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dream Angus to be better than the print version?

    Yes, think that the audio is a definite improvement over the book version as you get more of an idea of who the characters really are by listening to the story. I also think that if I am drawn to the readers voice it makes me want to continue listening.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Althogh I liked Angus, my favorite character was actually Bowen who was his mother the water spirit. She was so gentle of a spirit which explains why Angus was gentle himself. Bowen had a big impact on Angus despite being taken from him when he was so young.


    What about Michael Page’s performance did you like?

    I found that the use of Angus and his bag of dreams was a great way for anyone to understand Angus and what he does.


    If you could take any character from Dream Angus out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take out Angus and pick his brain about my dreams and what they signify to me.


    Any additional comments?

    I would listen to other books by this author if I found others that interested me.
