These stories show that this capacity is now flourishing at home' Ross Leckie, The Times 'There could be not be a more heartening showcase of talent. A showcase, incidentally, that will remind those in need of it that in the past few decades Scottish fiction has been creating some of the most powerful, vibrant writing to be found anywhere . . .
