At last her people will be free, and even knowing her collaboration with the Union will put her in danger, she means to help make it happen.

'It has to start somewhere for everyone, this daft, wild, extraordinary notion that happiness is a Scottish lap of honour and that the greatest, most hysterical happiness would be a Scottish lap of honour on a World Cup final day, England having just retired to the dressing-rooms, not just beaten, but destroyed, humiliated, thrashed, gubbed . . . ' - Ian Archer First published in 1976, We'll Support You Evermore is a collection of reminiscences about the nation's favourite game. Hilarious tales of after-match celebrations and moving accounts of growing up playing football on the mean streets of Glasgow and Edinburgh rub shoulders with memories of superb victories, glorious defeats and drunken jaunts abroad. Together, these produce an entertaining portrait of Scottish supporters. Novelist Alan Sharp and Gordon Williams contribute essays, as do journalists Ian Archer, John Rafferty and Hugh Taylor among others. Each writes about his own personal recollections of the game: the Wembley Wizards, the Famous Five, Third Lanark, the Old Firm, Queen's Park, Hearts, Hibs, and many more. There's something here for every fitba'-daft reader.

For Jared Dauman, being rich means being able to wear his heart on his Savile Row sleeve and nurture his obsession. For Ellis Peregory, being conventional means not being able to admit to his own desires. Both of them need something to happen. For Ellis that 'something' ideally equals inheriting the most productive farmland in Wales--Hayden Castle and its estate. Here, Angela Stearn--the 'killingly gorgeous' married woman who draws others to her like a fire--attends a house party and finds herself on the set of a grand opera. One where all the cast have their own hidden connections, hopes and desires. But they all join in the same chorus: " Happiness can seem about as likely as growing mangoes on the moon.' Pantomime aristocrats, ex-lovers and would-be lovers, the compulsive philanderer and the obligatory decoy female--all meet and collide in the country house setting by the River Wye. Theirs is a world where betrayal is signalled by an ill-fitting bracelet from Tiffany's, where the secret of married life seems to depend on perfect soft furnishings and where there are precisely ninety-nine steps between heaven and hell.
