Summary The first guide to Gaelic fiction - covering the full expanse of the canon. Tracing the history of Gaelic fiction over the last century, Moray Watson looks at the work of well-known authors such as Iain Moireach, Tormod Caimbeul and Iain Mac a' Ghobhainn, as well as lesser-known authors, and focuses on the major developments that have led to the recent flourishing in Gaelic fiction publishing. Watson examines novels and novellas from DAn-Aluinn to DAleas Donn and Shrapnel, alongside short story collections, uncollected fiction and short fiction from magazines such as Gairm.
