A Scottish Reel

The Scotsman brings us a "highly selective" list of the 20 Scottish novels they think everyone should read. One is willing to tackle Buddha Da again, and even pick up Trainspotting, but...Alexander McCall Smith? Surely not. Come to think of it: why no Arthur Conan Doyle? (James Kelman, A.L. Kennedy and Shena Mackay don't make the cut, either.)


  • There are Scottish novels?! (Kidding.) You don't like the kindly professor McCall Smith? I enjoyed his latest.

    Yes, strange about Kelman not being in there.
