‘This book may be read with delight the world over’ – The New York Times

‘It would be impossible to overestimate Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s importance ... A Scots Quair is a landmark work’ – David Kerr Cameron

One of the all-time greats of Scottish literature and truly revolutionary, A Scots Quair is a trilogy of novels: Sunset Song (1932), Cloud Howe (1933) and Grey Granite (1934). At each book’s core is the heroine Chris Guthrie, as she grows from a child into adulthood through the Great War to the development of communism in the 1920s. Grassic Gibbon’s writing is unique and riveting, blending Scots and English in an accessible style, and eloquent in its humanity and celebration of nature. This beautiful gift hardback edition will be released just in time for Christmas!

Lewis Grassic Gibbon (James Leslie Mitchell) was one of the finest writers of the twentieth century. Born in Aberdeenshire in 1901, he died at the age of thirty-four. He was a prolific writer of novels, short stories, essays and science fiction, and his writing reflected his wide interest in religion, archaeology, history, politics and science. The Mearns trilogy, A Scots Quair, is his most renowned work, and has become a landmark in Scottish literature.
