Overview

1864. In a Santa Fe gulley, scalped Scots thirteen-year-old Robert McGee lies bleeding to death. The Last Wolf of Scotland is his dream, etched onto the plate of pioneer America, his scalp lock speaking back to him, a hallucination projected in a near-death cinema.






This shocking real-life incident is our point of departure into the ritualistic imagination of MacGilivray. In this, her first collection, she dissects the Scottish imaginary and builds it up anew, creating a poetic panorama which stretches from the Highlands to the Wild West.

About the Author

MacGillivray has walked in a straight line with a dead wolf on her shoulders through the back streets of Vegas into the Nevada desert, eaten broken chandelier glass in a derelict East German shopping mall, headbanged in gold medieval stocks in Birmingham allotments, burnt on a sunbed wearing conquistador armour in Edinburgh's underground city, breast-fed a Highland swan in Oxford and regurgitated red roses in Greenland. She remains the clan chief.
