Books & music by people I know/have met (one each!)
Dr. R. E. Swanepoel "Eric the Read"
The Republic of Ted
"Witty and profound. This book used by professionals to help grief counselling. Also writes about football. Search his name on Amazon!"
Naked And Bare
"I interviewed Catriona for a magazine I used to run in Aberdeen. Chris recently crashed on my Edinburgh settee! Wonderful stuff."
Saving the World and Being Happy (the Computer Ager)
"Fascinating, disturbing, funny. (OK, I wrote this!)"
"A friend of mine, met through his super-talented wife, Eileen Hunter. Now he's broken free from X-Factor packaging he can fly! Listen with an open mind and be impressed!"
The Holy Woman
"Moving, enthralling. I taught English alongside Qaisra in Hulme, Manchester."
Fire & Grace
"A spell-binding mix of Scottish traditional music, virtuosity and traditional, jazz and classical sensibility!"
Where are You?
"This is an utterly wonderful and extremely entertaining book by three wonderful and highly talented people: Kevin Boniface and Joanna and Christoph Shaw. Buy it now!"
The Machine Doctor
"Unlike anything else I've read! I met Peter many years ago in Aberdeen. He's a multi-faceted and entertaining character, rather like his books!"
Steady Diet of Decline
"Andy Garratt was my downstairs neighbour in West Didsbury and is now a friend. Such a pity this band split up. I think Andy might well re-emerge one day as he is amazingly talented and hard-working."
Who Sleeps with Katz
"New York's Ulysses? I met Todd many years ago when he ran the Lemon Tree Writers in Aberdeen."
Beginning to Read Music for Traditional Musicians
"Sarh taught me fiddle at Edinburgh's Scots Music Group. A wonderful talent."
Over the Sky to See
"Amy is my current teacher. Like Sarah a great and inspiring teacher as well as an exceptional musician."
The Good Doctor
"I met Damon in 1981 when we were both in our final years at school in South Africa. This disturbing book conjures up the feelings of some white people in post-apartheid SA."
Pet Hates: The Shocking Truth About Pets and Vets
"A very funny yet shocking book by a veterinary colleague. Will put you off becoming a vet, that's for sure!"
"I spoke to Naomi at the Edinburgh International Book Festival some years ago. She offered to review "Saving the World and Being Happy" but her secretary fobbed me off a couple of years later! Grrr!"
"A genius. I met Lucy through her husband, Todd McEwen."
Lanark: Life in Four Books (Canongate Classics)
"I met Alasdair at the Thirsty Lunch events as part of the 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. I read Lanark when much younger and absolutely loved it!"
Born Up a Close: Memoirs of a Brigton Boy
"I met James Kelman as above, and am currently reading this book for which he wrote the introduction."
Hamish McHaggis and the Edinburgh Adventure
"I met Linda through the Society of Authors and have ordered a couple of her books for some young relatives!"
From the Life and Other Stories
"Wonderfully observed, warm and well-written. I met Sian through Aberdeen's Lemon Tree Writers many years ago."
"I met Leila the same way I met Sian. She is a truly great writer and it's a privilege to have met her."
Parecon: Life After Capitalism
"I met Michael at the Radical Book Fair organised by Word Power books. He has great ideas!"
Heat: How to Stop the Planet Burning
"I chatted to George after his talk at the above event. I have long admired his writings for the Guardian."
"Great people and terrific music! I've been to Blazin' in Beauly and hope to go again."
Drugs and the Party Line ("Rebel Inc")
"I read this long before I met Kevin. If you're at all interested in the issue of illegal drugs (approx. 1/5 of world trade) then this highly readable book is a must!"
