William McIlvanney

5 Apr 2014  •  7:30 P.M – 8:30 P.M  •  Mitchell Library

The godfather of tartan noir returns to Aye Write! to discuss his career.

William McIlvanney

The godfather of tartan noir. Whitbread Award winning writer of Docherty, a stunning evocation of community and its erosion. The journalist who was to have been Sean Connery’s biographer. An eagle-eyed observer of Scottish politics and culture. With Canongate reissuing all of McIlvanney’s work, and the TV rights to the Laidlaw books snapped up, it is a pleasure to welcome back to Aye Write! one of the most insightful novelists of his generation.

William McIlvanney is one of the leading contemporary novelists in Scotland. In addition to writing novels he has written poetry and short stories and worked as a journalist and TV presenter.
