1) Don Patterson Book of Shadows.
2) Janice Galloway This is Not About Me.
3) Edwin Morgan Cathures.
4) Rodge Glass Alasdair Gray: A Secretaries Biography.
5) Robert Crawford Scotland’s Books: The Penguin History of Scottish
6) A.L. Kennedy On Bullfighting.
7) Grace Maxwell Falling and Laughing: The Restoration of Edwyn Collins.
8) Duncan Petrie Screening Scotland.
9) Arthur Herman The Scottish Enlightenment: The Scot’s Invention of the Modern
10) Richard Holloway Between the Monster and the Saint.
All are worth checking out, but if pushed for a top three I would say go for Grace Maxwell’s moving book about husband Edwyn Collins’ recovery from life threatening illness, Robert Crawford’s exhaustive history of Scot Lit and Edwin Morgan’s beautiful poems.
