Launch: Mollycoddling the Feckless by Alistair Findlay on Thursday 20th June 2019
‘Findlay’s inability to be mealy-mouthed is both admirable and shocking.’ Jen Hadfield on Dancing with Big Eunice
In 1970, Alistair Findlay was drawn to become part of a new breed of Scottish social workers. He joins Waterstones Sauchiehall Street to launch his new memoir Mollycoddling the Feckless, a thoughtful, progressive, humane and funny account of social work in 1970s Scotland. He conveys how he and his fellow workers shared friendship and banter in what can be a hard and thankless job, and yet one that can also be hugely rewarding. Adding to the emerging voices telling their first-hand realities of working in our public services, Alistair reflects on the changing landscape of the profession after 30 years on the front line, in the first ever memoir of a career in Scottish social work.
