About this title


Fiction. Innovative stories by Michel Faber, Margaret Elphinstone, Ali Smith, Andrew Greig, Linda Cracknell, Christopher Whyte and 20 other outstanding Scottish contemporary writers, with points of reference ranging from Scott Fitzgerald to Eminem. "In WORD JIG there's the smoke and peat of the Glens, the pungency of urban Lowlands and badlands, the sea-tang of Orkney: Scottish writing has the power to lull dreams into life, and rub salt in wounds...From hillwalking to Trainspotting, WORD JIG gathers the best of recent Scottish writing"--Chris Dolan.
