Across the Water is an anthology of Irishness in modern Scottish writing. All of the 41 contemporary contributors have written a specially commissioned reflection on their experience of Irishness in Scotland.Â
Issued at an important time in the revising of the Scottish nationâ€™s identity, this book is both an enjoyable read as well as a document of immigration and the often humorous and sometimes painful process of integration.
A full and incisive introductory essay by the editors: James McGonigal of Glasgow Universityâ€™s Department of Education
Poet, journalist and broadcaster, Donny Oâ€™Rourke Librarian, publisher and author, Hamish Whyte.
