Meet Mick Little. He used to be a shipbuilder in the Glasgow yards. He used to be married to his beloved Cathy. But the yards closed, one after another, and the search for work took him and Cathy to Australia and back again, struggling for a living, longing for home. Thirty years later the yards are nearly all vacant and Cathy is dead. The ties that bound Mick to the past are loosened, and now he has to find a new way to live: get a new job, get out of the house where they raised their boys, and start again. In his new novel Ross Raisin brings vividly to life the story of an ordinary man caught between the loss of a great love and the outer reaches of modern existence. Tracing Mick's journey from the Glasgow shipyards to the crowded, sweating kitchens of an airport hotel to the streets and riversides of London, Waterline paints a vivid picture of the alienation of lives lived quietly all around us.
