The Fiction of Robin Jenkins : Some Kind of Grace

Description

The Fiction of Robin Jenkins is the first ever volume of essays dedicated to Robin Jenkins (1912-2005), hailed by Andrew Marr as `the best-kept secret in Modern British Literature', and by the Scotsman in 2000 as `the greatest living fiction-writer in Scotland [...] the Scottish Thomas Hardy'. This new study of Jenkins includes essays across his entire, astonishingly varied body of work. It includes provocative new readings of a range of thematic issues by established experts on Jenkins and on Scottish Literature more broadly. This volume also includes chapters dedicated to individual novels in Jenkins's corpus, including his best-known work, The Cone-Gatherers, as well as The Changeling, Fergus Lamont, and his posthumous novel, The Pearl Fishers. Contributors: Ingibjoerg Agustsdottir, Timothy C. Baker, Linden Bicket, Gerard Carruthers, Cairns Craig, Douglas Gifford, Michael Lamont, Margery Palmer McCulloch, Isobel Murray, Glenda Norquay, Alan Riach, David Robb, Bernard Sellin, Gavin Wallace.
