Scots Whay Hae! is delighted and honoured to announce the opening of The Birlinn and Polygon Book Shop, where you will be able to browse and buy the best in Scottish fiction and poetry, a wide selection of Cannongate Classics, and a collection of non-fiction which covers history, sport, comedy, film, music and so much more.
Personal favourites include a selection of lesser known Robin Jenkins novels, Agnes Owens collected short stories and novellas, the full back catalogue of James Kelman, including short stories and essays, and the work of the underrated Gordon Legge.
There’s something for everyone. From the sublime, including classic Scottish texts such as Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estatis, The Confessions and Memoirs of a Justified Sinner and The House with the Green Shutters, to the faintly ridiculous, Stanley Baxter’s Parliammo Glasgow, The Scottish Beer Bible and Glen Michael’s Autobiography Life’s a Cavalcade, there is a range of titles that is wide and exciting. Every month there will be a small selection of recommendations both from Scots Whay Hae! and the lovely people at Birlinn and Polygon (and I’m not just saying that, they really are). There will be new, and old, titles being added all the time so keep ’em peeled.
