New release!

Giles and I are delighted to announce the release of Back tae Auld Claes an’ Porridge: A New Start by Jack Melrose. In Jack’s words:

Through the eyes of its main character James, this Scottish coming-of-age story evokes daily life of Edinburgh folk in the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s.

Set against the backdrop of a still-depressed Leith and a regenerating Edinburgh, Back tae Auld Claes an’ Porridge chronicles three decades in the lives of a Scottish family.

In two captivating volumes, Jack Melrose tells the unique story of Janet and Ian Swanston as they pick up the pieces after six long years of war, bringing up their two bairns in a slum tenement.

This was a wonderful, beautifully written book to work on and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the main character, James, and his family. Jack’s second book in the series, A New Age, will be available soon, so keep your eyes on and here for news of its release. Spoiler alert: it’s equally as enjoyable as A New Start and this editor is already looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Happy reading! Lel.
