The Best Scottish Books of 2015

November 24, 2015

The Best Scottish Books of 2015 are out from The Bottle Imp. Congratulations to Ryan van Winkle, Poet in Residence at Edinburgh City Libraries and author Michel Faber, published by Edinburgh publisher Canongate.

Twelve works were selected by fourteen authors, critics, academics, and members of the literary sector to talk about their favourite Scottish book from this past year. The book could be in English, Scots, or Gaelic, it could be published for the first time in 2015 or re-issued this year, and could be a work of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or academic research. Check out the full list on The Bottle Imp website here.

Was 2015 a good year for Scottish writing? If your favourite book is not on the list, contact The Bottle Imp via email and let them know.

The Bottle Imp is published by the Association for Scottish Literary Studies (ASLS) and comes out twice a year. The Bottle Imp exists to promote and support the teaching and study of Scottish literature and language with articles and opinions along with information on new developments in Scottish literature and literary criticism.
