Scotland Street Press

The Press was set up to publish "ANT". After 8 years research on Chasing Lost Time, the Life of C. K. Scott Moncrieff, Soldier, Spy, Translator,( published by Chatto and Windus and Vintage here in the UK and by Farrar Straus and Giroux in the US), Jean Findlay, the author, was left with masses of material. The creative works of C. K. Scott Moncrieff had never been collected and here they all were waiting to go to press. Being naturally impatient, she decided, like the Little Red Hen, to do it herself. Hence the birth of Scotland Street Press. The Press will go on to publish literary fiction, memoir and travel in book form.

Product Description


Social reformer, peace activist, policy advisor, Kay Carmichael keenly observed the downtrodden and effected much of the social reform we take for granted. This collection of her essays and writings - many from her column in New Society in the 1980s reflect a courageous spirit in crystal clear prose. Her dying was as controversial as her life and her thoughts on death are things we need to hear and discuss for ourselves and for our young.
