Anyone keeping up with the contemporary Scottish novel will know what a great writer James Robertson is. In his latest novel And the Land Lay Still, two of the leading characters are photographers. Michael Pendreich is curating an exhibition of photographs by his late, celebrated father Angus for the National Gallery of Photography in Edinburgh. The show will cover fifty years of Scottish life but, as he arranges the images and writes his catalogue essay, what story is Michael really trying to tell: his father's, his own or that of Scotland itself? The novel was very favourably reviewed by Irvine Welsh: “he maintains the pace and luminous prose that make his books such a joy to read. And the Land Lay Still is a wonderful novel, brilliant in a very different way from its acclaimed predecessor, The Testament of Gideon Mack. The book represents nothing less than a landmark for the novel in Scotland.”
