The Gaelic Literature Awards 2020
Best Unpublished Manuscript for Adults - Linne Dhomhainn, Alistair Paul

Ordinary people. Everyday situations. Extraordinary outcomes. One small twist of fate and the normal turns to the fantastic. And so, the book's characters are propelled into the world of the marvellous, the supernatural and the surreal; not to mention the ridiculous; where they wrestle with their demons, their desires and their failings. Sometimes they triumph. Sometimes life triumphs. Their stories take us from the familiar shores of the Gaidhealtachd through the smoky streets of Glasgow and the industrial heartlands of the North of England to the sun scorched African Savannah.

Taking inspiration from local folklore on the Island of Arran, traditional Gaelic story telling themes and techniques are weaved into modern topics such as relationships, drug use and mental illness.

Take a walk up the glen and dive into the deep pool.
