9780099268482: Ahead of Its Time: A Clocktower Press Anthology

Taking its name from the clock-tower of South Queensferry's town hall, where Duncan McClean worked as a janitor, Clocktower Press has-over the past seven years-published some of the most challenging and important writing to come out of Britain since the war. In 1990 you could read early drafts of irvine Welsh's Trainspotting, James Kelman's How Late it Was, How Late, or Janice Galloway's Foreign Parts, alongside stories by the best young Scottish authors: Gordon Legge, James Meek and Alan Warner. With Scottish fiction now acknowledged as the most exciting and influential now being written in these islands, this anthology brings together the key players. The writers are represented either by the original published pieces or by new stories written specially for this collection. It is a fitting tribute to a publisher truely ahead of his time .
