Ever fancied visiting Glasgow? Would you like a local to show you round and give you a bit of history that you won’t get in the museums?

Then try First of May, Brendan McLaughlin’s intimate memoir. Brendan weaves a tapestry of reflections, ruminations and recollections on his whole life, accompanied by a few rants. He takes readers on a journey that delves into his experiences of life in the real Glasgow, with its intricate social, cultural and political history, with its tragedies, its songs and stories, its political debates, and fights for social justice, its deprivation and struggles for improvement, always with family never far from mind.

Who needs the mystical islands of Greece or the delicious cuisine of France, when you can discover the real history of Glasgow as told by a true activist, musician, and father.
