The same characters feature repeatedly in the stories and sketches, each bringing their own perspective and understanding to the various events of the book. Although each chapter stands alone as a complete piece of short fiction, the chapters intertwine to create a full-bodied manuscript in which various issues of modern life are examined. The narrative is written in Standard English with Glasgow dialect forming the dialogue between characters. The book does not flinch from tackling contentious issues, but Glasgow humour is at the heart of every piece. The stories range from poignantly moving to outrageously humorous to deeply disturbing. Had Adam Not Eaten the Apple challenges the reader to consider the issues examined that, like it or not, affect all of us to some degree. The book can be used to pick-in to any stand-alone piece for a short read, or it can be considered as an entire, intertextual work of fiction.Includes the opening section of the novel The Devils Porridge as a bonus.
