Book Description

21 Aug 2006
Using a contemporary voice to address themes of reflection, love, loss, culture, heritage, family and society that are traditional to Scotland and to the Gaelic world, MacIntyre's collection is poignant, engaging, and destined to be a classic. Each Gaelic poem is accompanied by a full English translation and there are several original English poems. This is the first collection of poetry from winner of The Saltire Society First Book Award 2003.

Review

`It seems clear that MacIntyre has achieved something special. He
has taken what is certainly his own second language, and is writing in it
as his first.'
-- West Highland Free Press,16 March 2007

About the Author

Martin MacIntyre was born in 1965 to a South Uist father and Glaswegian mother, and was brought up in Lenzie. In 1988 he graduated from the University of Aberdeen in medicine, and has attained qualifications in Business and Gaidhealtachd Studies at Sabhal Mor Ostaig. Martin divides his work-time between medicine, writing and storytelling. He lives in Edinburgh with his wife Annmarie and their two children, Sorcha and Iain Finlay. His previous publications include Ath-Aithne (Re-acquaintance), a collection of short stories which won The Saltire Society First Book Award in 2003 and Gymnippers Dicidian (Wednesday Gymnippers), an Edinburgh-based Gaelic novel shortlisted for The Saltire Society Book of the Year 2005. He is currently working on a new novel. He has appeared at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Aberdeen's Word Festival, New York's Tartan Week, and in 2000 toured to Ireland on Cuairt nam Bard.
