Overview

Grassic Gibbon's fame rests mainly on the trilogy, A Scots Quair, and the short stories included here, some well known, exhibit the same elements found in his novels -- powerful, dramatic writing and a distinctive local flavour. The Speak of the Mearns, a novella, is a sharply observed portrait of a rural community on the coast seen through the eyes of a young boy growing up there. The essays put on record Grassic Gibbon's views on, among other things, politics and religion, and give a more personal insight into the mind of one of Scotland's greatest writers. In this new edition, Jeremy Idle introduces three of his short stories.
