Sang fur the Wandert, or Song for the Lost by Janet Paisley
Written in both Scots and English, with some works rendered in both languages, the poems included here focus on Scotland and the world, touching upon personal and international events from as far back as year 542 to the present day. They explore the dramatic effects that politics, education, sociology, science, war and trauma can have on the individual.
This volume is a worthy addition to an already powerful and highly acclaimed body of work from Janet Paisley.
A remarkable, complex literary journey.
THE HERALD on Reading the Bones
A wonderful collection… Undoubtedly the finest collection of vernacular monologues by a Stirlingshire witch to emerge so far this year.
THE SCOTSMAN on Ye Cannae Win
These stories are great. This book is an instant classic.
ALI SMITH on Not for Glory
Pacy, racy… a claymoreswinging, heather-igniting, historical adventure.
