The Tailor of Inverness by Matthew Zajac - April 5 to May 11
The Tailor of Inverness is a story of journeys, of how a boy who grew up on a farm in Galicia (Eastern Poland, now Western Ukraine) came to be a tailor in Inverness. His life spanned most of the 20th century. His story is not straightforward. He was taken prisoner by the Soviets in 1939 and forced to work east of the Urals, then freed in an amnesty after the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. He then joined the thousands of Poles who travelled to Tehran, then Egypt, to be integrated into the British Army, fighting in North Africa and Italy. He was then resettled in Britain in 1948, joining his brother in Glasgow. This is the story he told.
“This is a towering piece of work with a glorious performance by the author.”
Emer O’Kelly, Sunday Independent Ireland 2013

The Stornoway Way by Kevin MacNeil - The Edinburgh Fringe in August and touring Scotland October 3 to 30
"The Stornoway Way is an entropic tale of energies sparked to life and quenched by landscape, language and culture. It is also a novel of consistently hilarious verbal invention. Roman is 30, an intermittent artist and ex-busker who has fled the island and failed to find the life he dreamt of. Returned, he lives as if nothing has altered. He and his contemporaries - ex-lover Eilidh, the faded beauty Karen and lost souls like Joe Idea and Jimmy the Tongue from Tong - spiral boozily about the memory of hopes past."
