AN LEABHAR LIATH: THE LIGHT BLUE BOOK

Dis 28 An Dàmhair

500 years of the Erotic in Gaelic Verse. 

Winner of the Donald Meek Award 2016, this collection of bawdy, erotic and transgressive Gaelic song and verse mines a long tradition back to the age of Ossian.  ‘… Much works by innuendo rather than explicit detail … to balance the more risqué material we include some relatively gentle love poems.’ With Peter Mackay.

Peter Mackay is from Lewis. He is a lecturer at the University of St Andrews and is the author of Gu Leòr / Galore, From Another Island and Sorley MacLean.  He is one of ten BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinkers.
