“The world is full of information. What do we do when we get the information, when we have digested the information, what do we do then? Is there a point where you say, yes, stop, now I shall move on.” This exhilarating collection of essays, interviews, and correspondence—spanning the years 1988 through 2018, and reaching back a decade more—is about the simple concept that ideas matter. They mutate, inform, create fuel for thought, and inspire actions. As Kelman says, the State relies on our suffocation, that we cannot hope to learn the truth. But whether we can or not is beside the point. We must grasp the nettle, we assume control and go forward. Between Thought and Expression Lies a Lifetime is an impassioned, elucidating, and often humorous collaboration. Philosophical and intimate, it is a call to ponder, imagine, explore, and act.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kelman has the knack, maybe more than anyone since Joyce, of fixing in his writing the lyricism of ordinary people’s speech…Pure aesthete, undaunted democrat—somehow Kelman manages to reconcile his two halves.” Esquire (London) praise for James Kelman
“Probably the most influential novelist of the post-war period.” The Times praise for James Kelman
