James Kelman (2016 Event)
With the publication of Dirt Road, Scotland’s only Booker Prize winner joins a Scottish publisher for the first time in decades. This brilliantly accessible road movie of a novel arrives with Canongate’s typical panache, alongside a film adaptation of the book. In this event recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival, James Kelman, the writer described by Amit Chaudhuri as ‘the greatest living British novelist’, discusses perhaps his most significant novel yet with Brian Taylor.
