My new book, a virtual tour, in poetry and prose, of Fife - with more than a dash of quirkiness on the way ... Follows the Fife coast but with forays inland. Published by Grace Note Publications who have served Fife well. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/53210674-the-devil-and-michael-scot#:~:text=The%20Devil%20and%20Michael%20Scot%3A%20A%20Gallimaufry%20of,at%20the%20Kincardine%20Bridge%2C%20with%20substantial%20forays%20inland.
Who needs some reading inspiration? Here is another review from Emma. It is The Road Trip by Beth O'Leary. Synopsis: When Addie and her sister are in a car crash on the way to Scotland for a friends wedding, little did they know Addie’s ex boyfriend Dylan and his friend Marcus would be in the other car. When the boys realise their car is totalled, Addie reluctantly agrees to let them travel with her and her sister Deb. Many moments of hilarity ensue on the journey, but it’s also an intense period of reflection for Dylan and Addie as they try to block out their previous romance. Dylan’s friend Marcus being there is also a sore point for Addie as they never got on and she in part blames him for their breakup. My Opinion: I cannot rave about Beth O’Leary enough! Her books are just fantastic and wholesome. For me, The Road Trip was a literary delight and I’m so glad it was everything I hoped it would be as it was one of my most anticipated reads this year! As with The Flatshare and The Switch, I flew through this book and it was just the most perfect form of escapism. Cannot recommend enough! I would recommend this to anyone who loved The Flatshare and The Switch. If you love a cosy story with blossoming and rekindled romance this is the book for you! (TW: mention of attempted sexual assault.)

The Devil and Michael Scot: A Gallimaufry of Fife and Beyond Tom Hubbard Grace Note Publications, 16 Apr 2020 - Poetry - 164 pages This book offers you a virtual tour of much of Fife, mainly of its 'fringe of gold'. It starts just west of Newburgh at the border with Perthshire and ends at the Kincardine Bridge, with substantial forays inland. The county's international bearings are highlighted, with poetry and prose invoking ancestral 'Fifers' such as the Russian poet Mikhaïl Lermontov and the American novelist Herman Melville of Moby-Dick. Goethe's Faust finds a Scottish accent of sorts (as also the Shakespeare of Macbeth and The Tempest), and Alexander Pushkin unknowingly borrows a tale from Dunfermline's Robert Henrysoun. The centre-piece, which provides the title of our gallimaufry, is a play based on the vicissitudes of Michael Scot of Balwearie, the medieval polymath famous in both legend and history, and centering on his pact with the devil. More recent local heroes are celebrated, not least Joe Corrie of In Time o' Strife. 'This is what makes Tom Hubbard such a rewarding guide: a man steeped in the places and tales of the Kinrick who doesn't get run over by them, rather he manages to unfold fresh visions, partly because - as cosmopolitan traveller and translator, all human effort lies before him.' - from CHRISTOPHER HARVIE's Foreword.
