From this evocative title comes a powerful novel set in the city of Glasgow in 1939. This is indeed a bleak stage, and yet how does this title, with its implication of freedom and flight, meld with a depressed city at the outbreak of war? The main character, a journalist, finds that a glimpse of wild geese catalyses the development of his thinking on various levels - social, political and psychological. The contrast of urban and rural life, characteristically penetrating dialogue, remarkable insight, physical violence...all are included and take the reader on an absorbing and enlightening journey to the story's denouement. Another outstanding novel from the creative pen of Gunn.

About the Author:

Neil Gunn was one of Scotland's most distinguished twentieth-century writers. His writing spanned thirty years, ending in the mid-1950s. These two novels show different facets of Gunn's novels in that the first, Second Sight sees the protagonists in typical Highland Scotland, while Wild Geese Overhead is set in Glasgow, a less familiar but no less powerful backdrop for Gunn's fluid and inspiring writing.
