Chiara Bullen’s October edition of BookSpace reviews some of the latest Scottish literary productions
THE nights are longer, the days are wetter and the temptation to curl up with a good book whilst the rain rages outside is never stronger than in November. Scottish publishers are the ultimate enablers for that temptation this autumn, releasing a wide variety of titles to warm you up and get you through the dreich weather.
The German Room, Carla Maliandi (translated by Frances Riddle)
