Sinopsis:

Alexander McCall Smith retells the "Myth of Dream Angus" as part of the "Canongate Myths" series. Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell...If he's in the right mood, divine Angus might grant you sight of your true love in a dream; you might even fall in love with him - but he'll never love you back. He's too busy making mischief - stealing the palace of the gods from his father, turning his enemies into pigs etc - until he is trapped by his own romantic games and falls for an unattainable woman, doomed to seek her forever. In twentieth-century Scotland, Angus's troubled alter ego searches for his true family; a psychotherapist who helps people understand their dreams, his life seems to parallel that of his mythic namesake, until we ask - could they be one and the same? Mesmerically weaving together the tales of the Celtic god and the Scottish scientist, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?

Review:

"[Alexander McCall Smith's] prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision. This is art that conceals art. I haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time." Sunday Telegraph "Alexander McCall Smith has become one of those commodities, like oil or chocolate or money, where the supply is never sufficient to the demand... [He] is prolific and habit-forming..." Globe And Mail "Alexander McCall Smith's subtle, gentle stories are works of art." Telegraph"
