Although she’s best known as a BBC newsreader and her father was a famous Icelander, Sally Magnusson is descended on her mother’s side from victims of the Highland Clearances. That terrible period of Scottish history is at the heart of Magnusson’s new novel, Music in the Dark. Shot through with spirited resilience, it’s a tender, clear-eyed reckoning with Scotland’s past. In conversation with Graeme Macrae Burnet.
