Mauricewood Devils Dorothy Alexander @FreightBooks launch 27th February 2016 Galashiels Scotland

Poet Dorothy Alexander launches her first novel The Mauricewood Devils in the Scottish Borders.

'This is an engrossing story about a vital piece of social history. If that sounds dull, be assured that Alexander's finely wrought characters are anything but. Martha and Jess sparkle among the poverty and coal dust, their voices ringing out down the years that have seen too many people lost in industrial disasters. It is an important tale, beautifully told, and deserves to be better known.' The National

The event is from 2.30 to 4.30pm at MacArts. There will be readings and cake. Free.

You know we don't go in much for giving fiction a mention on p&g but very much prepared to make an exception for this subtle, warm, and challenging work.
