The Busconductor Hines (1984)
in James Kelman
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter discusses Kelman's The Busconductor Hines, a novel that reflects his tenure as a busconductor in Glasgow, but also notes that Kelman had many other occupations to choose from and tries to determine why he chose a busconductor as the subject of his first novel. It addresses the question why Kelman placed his protagonist on Glasgow buses, and introduces the idea of ‘Medit’ sections, also examining the belief that Glasgow should never be forgotten in Kelman's texts.
