The Credit Draper

by J. David Simons - £8.99  Saraband (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781908643834 | ISBN 10: 1908643838

The first book in J David Simons' magnum opus, a loose trilogy following his interconnected cast of characters from Glasgow to Galilee.
In 1911, young Avram Escovitz is shipped off to Scotland to escape conscription into the Russian army. Living in the heart of Glasgow's tight-knit Jewish community, he dreams of playing for Celtic FC until World War I intervenes and he is sent to work as a credit draper, peddling goods on credit to the crofters and villagers of the Western Highlands. A stranger in a strange land, Avram is faced with the challenges of setting up a new business and capturing the heart of a Highland lass. But how easy will it be to shake off his Jewish roots?
Simons' acclaimed first novel is followed by The Liberation of Celia Kahn and the finale, The Land Agent, being published by Saraband in October 2014.
