Three of our favourite Edinburgh authors - Lesley Glaister, Angela Jackson and Ruth Thomas - join us to talk about the Edinburgh writing scene, their work in fiction, and what it was like to bring books out during lockdown.
About the Authors:
Lesley Glaister is a fiction writer, poet, playwright and teacher of writing. She has published fourteen adult novels, the first of a YA trilogy and numerous short stories. She received both a Somerset Maugham and a Betty Trask award for Honour Thy Father (1990), and has won or been listed for several literary prizes for her other work. She teaches creative writing at the University of St Andrews and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
Angela Jackson is a former psychology lecturer. Her debut novel The Emergence of Judy Taylor won the Edinburgh International Book Festival’s First Book Award in 2013 and was Waterstones’ Scottish Book of the Year. Her ;atest novel, The Darlings, is a story about betrayal, infidelity and how we often blinker ourselves to see a version of the truth that is more palatable to us.
Ruth Thomas is the author of three short story collections and three novels, as well as many short stories which have been anthologised and broadcast on the BBC. Her writing has won and been shortlisted for various prizes, including the John Llewellyn Rhys Award, the Saltire First Book Award and the VS Pritchett Prize, and long-listed for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. She is currently an Advisory Fellow for the Royal Literary Fund.
