With school behind him and a summer job at a brick works, Tom had his whole life before him. Years later, alone in a rented flat in Edinburgh and lost in memories, Tom recalls the intellectual and sexual awakening of his youth. In looking back, Tom discovers that only by understanding where he comes from can he make sense of his life as it is now. A follow-up to the author's prize-winning novel Docherty, which focused on Tam's namesake grandfather, this is a "beautifully written" story of boyhood, manhood, and the sometimes blurry border between them (The Times, London). "On almost every page it offers matter for reflection and the sudden stab of emotion that comes from reading something that is truly evoked or created . . . It is rare and it is wonderful." —The Scotsman

The Kiln is a gun that fires pots that break into 3 bouncing crystals upon hitting something. The charcoal kiln is a structure that is used to create coal from wood.
