Tracing the history of Gaelic fiction over the last century, Moray Watson looks at the work of well-known authors such as Iain Moireach, Tormod Caimbeul and Iain Mac a' Ghobhainn, as well as lesser-known authors, and focuses on the major developments that have led to the recent flourishing in Gaelic fiction publishing. Watson examines novels and novellas from Dùn-Aluinn to Dìleas Donn and Shrapnel, alongside short story collections, uncollected fiction and short fiction from magazines such as Gairm. The final chapters focus on the current state of Gaelic fiction and discuss the most recent initiatives that have sustained the viability of fiction in the Gaelic language.
