I bought this book not really knowing what to expect; I'm not a man and I'm not gay. And I am pleased to say I have been enjoying it for a variety of reasons. It's very informative, but in a way that lets you put it down and pick it up at will. It's got lots of photos of Edwin Morgan, his family, friends and associates, and is interestingly set out and written. A lot of thought has gone into it. I bought it for myself, but I would now consider giving it as a gift to someone with an interest in the arts in Scotland, or quite simply an interest in art and literature in the 20th century.
