Oxford book of Scottish short stories
Oxford University Press,
Encompassing magical fairy tales and modern innovative works, The Oxford Book of Scottish Short Stories surveys the rich literary heritage of Scotland, in a collection of forty-four superb tales, the most extensive such anthology in print. Here readers will discover such wonderful tales as "The Wee Bannock," Sir Walter Scott's classic "The Two Drovers" (widely considered the first true short story ever written), Muriel Spark's "Bang-Bang You're Dead," and James Kelman's "Sunday Papers." Not only are the finest writers of the past well represented--including familiar faces such as Sir James Barrie and Robert Louis Stevenson--but there's also a host of superb modern writers here as well, such as Shena MacKay, Alan Spence, Margaret Elphinstone, Ronald Frame, and Janice Galloway, to name but a few. With a highly informative and insightful introduction by Douglas Dunn, one of Scotland's leading literary figures, this anthology offers a revealing look at the best of Scottish writing.
