North Sea oil exploration has been a subject of impassioned debate in Scottish life, and literature. Writer Richard T Kelly makes it the subject of his evocative novel The Black Eden. Charting the promise of ‘black gold’, he spins a fascinating story about five characters from different walks of life affected by the oil boom. Today, Kelly discusses his work with Mary Paulson-Ellis.
