Louise Welsh and James Robertson will read short excerpts from their work and discuss the condition of contemporary Scottish fiction. James, Louise and Laura will discuss whether they feel they are working in/belong to a Scottish tradition of literature, i.e. how conscious we are of Scott, Stevenson, Hogg etc, and whether that kind of tradition matters.

James Robertson is a poet, short-story writer and novelist. His novels are The Fanatic, Joseph Knight, and The Testament of Gideon Mack, which was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize and featured on the Richard and Judy Book Club.

Louise Welsh - Probably best known for her dark, Glasgow-based thriller, The Cutting Room, Louise has also written the crime novel The Bullet Trick and the highly regarded literary novella Tamburlaine Must Die. She has been the recipient of several awards, including The City of Glasgow Lord Provost’s Award for Literature (2007).
