Summary
The Fiction of Robin Jenkins' is the first ever volume of essays dedicated to Robin Jenkins (1912-2005), hailed by Andrew Marr as ?the best-kept secret in Modern British Literature?, and by the Scotsman in 2000 as ?the greatest living fiction-writer in Scotland [?] the Scottish Thomas Hardy?. This new study of Jenkins includes essays across his entire, astonishingly varied body of work. It includes provocative new readings of a range of thematic issues by established experts on Jenkins and on Scottish Literature more broadly. This volume also includes chapters dedicated to individual novels in Jenkins?s corpus, including his best-known work, 'The Cone-Gatherers', as well as 'The Changeling', 'Fergus Lamont', and his posthumous novel, 'The Pearl Fishers'.
