The Penguin Book of Scottish Short Stories, Paperback

The Penguin Book of Scottish Short Stories Paperback


'In this collection the heretical principle has been adopted that if a writer is Scots, something of the Scottish spirit must inevitably emerge from his work'.

In the twenty stories collected here, we are given a multi-faceted view of Scotland, the Scots and the Scottish short story, with stories ranging from Roman Britain through the trials of those at home during the Second World War to a country and people determined to assert their independence.
