Description

Original tales by remarkable writers

Hometown Tales is a series of books pairing exciting new voices with some of the most talented and important writers at work today. Some of the tales are fiction and some are narrative non-fiction - they are all powerful, fascinating and moving, and aim to celebrate regional diversity and explore the meaning of home.

In these pages on Glasgow, you'll find two unique tales: a moving account of growing up in the shadow of Woodilee Hospital by author of The Gracekeepers, Kirsty Logan, and a deeply personal journey on foot through the city of Glasgow by Paul McQuade.

Read by Chris Reilly and Kirsty Logan
