'Writing about writers, far from being irrelevant, is a genuine act of solidarity, supportive and steadying. I enjoyed it enormously' Brian Morton, Sunday Herald
 
Tracing the blurred line between life and literature has taken David Robinson to places as far afield as west Kansas and the edge of the Kalahari.  It’s also taken him on journeys of discovery into the minds of some of the most gifted writers alive. This beautifully produced collection of essays and interviews is based on his articles in The Scotsman newspaper and is a record of those fascinating encounters - a book that starts in a couple of dozen other books and takes the reader on  the road to even more.

If you’ve ever found yourself enthralled underneath the canvas of a book festival tent—or if you’ve only wished for the chance—In Cold Ink is the perfect recreation, taking you straight to your best-loved authors and helping you discover new favourites!

David Robinson is the Books Editor of The Scotsman. Born in Bradford, he has been a newspaper journalist all his working life. He lives with his wife and two children in Edinburgh. This is his first book.
