Window in Thrums - the story of the 'untrue son' - is about the fictional village of Thrums. The story and setting is widely acknowledged to be modelled on Barrie's home town of Kirriemuir. It was one of his earlier works which along with Auld Licht Idylls, also published in 1889, contains many memorable sketches and illuminations of Scottish life at the time, and paved the way for Barrie's great career.
