A Large Measure of Snow
A Tale from Kinloch
'Meyrick's novella is a break with crime and bulges with satire - It's Para Handy on a hallucinogenic trip'
– Stuart Cosgrove, BBC Commentator and author
'Brimming with bonhomie, bristling with banter and laced with a healthy dose of fantasy'
– Sunday Post
''It sings with the evocation of time, place and people, and the humour and truth behind fishermen’s tall tales'
– The Scotsman
When I heard Denzil Meyrick had written a novella I jumped for joy, and I was 100% rewarded. This is laugh out loud funny, atmospheric ( I had to hide my chips from the Seagulls at one point I was so convinced I was in Kinloch) and utterly charming.. MUST READ'
– a Waterstones Bookseller
'A compelling, adventurous, and somewhat quirky tale of the sea ... There are some mystical touches of otherworldliness to be discovered along the way that really appealed to me, as did Sandy and the lobster! Amusing and entertaining, A Large Measure of Snow would make a perfect stocking filler for all the Denzil Meyrick fans out there'
'A brilliant atmospheric book'
UK Crime Book Club
'Brimming with humour and a delight to read from start to finish. For such a short novel, there’s barrels of laughs to enjoy. It’s hard to find criticism with this book. Look no further for a delightful read'
– Dundee Courier, Book of the Week
