Excerpt from Crockett and Grey Galloway: The Novelist and His Works When it was contemplated by the Publisher of this work to issue, in pamphlet form, an account of the complimentary banquet given to Mr Crockett at Dalbeattie in the autumn of last year, many of the friends of the novelist and admirers of his works were desirous to know something of his early life, school and college days, and career as a man of letters. As one who had known Mr Crockett from his boyhood, I was asked by the Publisher to furnish a biographical sketch of the novelists career, and otherwise undertake the preparation of the work for publication. This I readily undertook to do. Indeed, I felt highly gratified in being privileged to associate myself by commemorating, in this way, a brother Gallovidian's successful career in the literary world. At the same time, I entered upon the work with some misgivings. I was well aware that the writing of biography, especially contemporary biography, requires great tact and delicate handling.

Kailyard and Scottish Literature

For more than a century, the word 'Kailyard' has been a focal point of Scottish literary and cultural debate. Originally a term of literary criticism, it has come to be used, often pejoratively, across a whole range of academic and popular discourse. Historians, politicians and critics of Scottish film and media have joined literary scholars in using the term to set out a diagnosis of Scottish culture. This is the first comprehensive study of the subject. Andrew Nash traces the origins of the Kailyard diagnosis in the nineteenth century and considers the critical concerns that gave rise to it. He then provides a full reassessment of the literature most commonly associated with the term – the fiction of J.M. Barrie, S.R. Crockett and Ian Maclaren. Placing this work in more appropriate contexts, he considers the literary, social and religious imperatives that underpinned it and discusses the impact of these writers in the publishing world. These chapters are succeeded by detailed analysis of the various ways in which the term has been used in wider discussions of Scottish literature and culture. Discussing literary criticism, film studies, and political and sociological analyses of Scotland, Nash shows how Kailyard, as a critical term, helps expose some of the key issues in Scottish cultural debate in the twentieth century, including discussions over national representation, popular culture and the parochialism of Scottish culture.

Vom alten England in die Straßencafés von Paris, über das in der Augusthitze flirrende Korsika bis ins pulsierende New York führt uns diese fesselnde Familiensaga. Sie erzählt von der Macht der wahren Liebe über Jahrzehnte, Kontinente und Generationen hinweg – und davon, wie Herzen und Familien gerade dann miteinander vereint werden, wenn sie für immer verloren scheinen. England, 1928: Alice und Tom kennen sich aus unbeschwerten Kindertagen: sie, die vor Energie sprühende junge Aristokratin, und er, der noch unbekannte Maler. Ihre Liebe fühlt sich an wie die reinste Magie – doch nicht nur Alices Familie setzt alles daran, eine gemeinsame Zukunft zu verhindern. London, sechzig Jahre später: Die junge Fotografin Kate findet im Nachlass ihrer Großmutter eine alte Porträt-Skizze, die ihrer verstorbenen Mutter verblüffend ähnlich sieht. Was hat es mit der Zeichnung auf sich? Und wer ist die Frau darauf? Um dem Geheimnis um das Porträt und um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter näher zu kommen, macht sich Kate auf die Suche nach dem Künstler, dem berühmten Maler Thomas Stafford ... Die Stunde der Liebenden erzählt von Sehnsucht und Hoffnung, von Verlust und Schmerz, von Abenteuer und Freiheit. Davon, aus Konventionen auszubrechen und den Mut zu finden, seine Ängste zu überwinden. Und vor allem von Liebe und Nähe, die man zulassen muss, um sein Glück im Leben zu finden.
