Stuart David is a musician, songwriter and novelist.
With Alistair Braidwood, Scots Whay Hae!
Stuart David is a musician, songwriter and novelist. He co-founded the band Belle and Sebastian and went on to form Looper. He grew up in Alexandria, on the west coast of Scotland – a town memorably described as looking like ‘a town that’s helping the police with their inquiries’. He returns to chronicling the chaotic life and times of his favourite Glasgow chancer, Peacock Johnson, in his forthcoming novel, Peacock’s Alibi, described by the Independent as ‘Billy Connolly meets Inspector Clouseau’.
In Peacock’s Alibi, Peacock Johnson is excited about his next get-rich-quick scheme. He thinks it’s a surefire winner and has a friend interested in investing. Unfortunately, Peacock is also the main suspect for the murder of small-time crook Dougie Dowds. He has an alibi, but Detective Inspector McFadgen is not buying it. Under McFadgen’s constant surveillance, Peacock’s path to riches seems to be vanishing into the ether, and then things begin to seriously unravel . . .
‘Peacock and Bev are fantastic characters. Very excited to see them back’ – Graham Linehan
‘If Stuart David ever gives up the day job, pop music’s loss would be literature’s gain’ – The Times
