Into The Valley: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talk To Pauline Lynch…

603b850df163bda80d18583b6aeac148_w700For the latest podcast, Ali headed down the Clyde Valley to talk to writer and actor Pauline Lynch. The primary reason was to discuss Pauline’s terrific debut novel, Armadillos, which is out now, and you can read the Scots Whay Hae! review here.

It’s a terrific read and the two talk about it at length. For a debut novel from a Scottish writer it is unusual in being set outside of Scotland, in this case in Texas, a decision which was to prove a wise one when it came to research.

Pauline talks in detail about how Armadillos grew from a single idea to become one of the best books of the year. But don’t take our word for it – it’s now included on the long list for The Guardian’s Not The Booker Prize, so someone must agree.

The two also touch 29547067on the pros and cons of university writing courses and how Pauline’s focus moved from acting to writing over the years. She has had a fascinating life, treading the boards and touring the world, as well as being a key part of the cultural phenomenon that is Trainspotting.

It all makes for a really warm and interesting listen, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it.
