Here is a selection of short stories, drawn from collections of prose by the author. Best known for her Scots writing, here her work in English is presented, with a smattering of Scots dialogue.
The tales deal with the mysteries of life, religion, ageing, birth and sex . There is humour, mystery and intrigue, from Maharajahs to Shortbread, and always the often dark dynamics of human relationships.
