Press Reviews

"There are no grand themes, no presiding hierarchical values at the core of this latest collection of New Writing Scotland. But there are voices, a disparate horde of them firmly set in the Scottish tradition of writing intended to entertain, arrest and provoke ... Established names - Alasdair Gray, Agnes Owens, Ron Butlin, Stewart Conn, Neal Ascherson, Andrew Greig, Christopher Whyte, Lesley Glaister, Maoilios Caimbeul and Valerie Gillies - are steady presences. But the collection derives invaluable added strength from its democracy of openness, by accepting 'all forms of writing' from 'writers resident in Scotland or Scots by birth, upbringing or inclination', reminding readers that 'Scotland is an attitude of mind'." - The Scotsman
