What People Have Said About Ten Writers Telling Lies
‘Ten Writers is that rare delight – an anthology so consistently good that you read every piece in order, without flicking through the pages in search of something more exhilarating.’
Zoë Strachan and Louise Welsh
‘A brilliant idea, magnificently executed.’
Victoria Gosling, Editor, The Reader Berlin (Author and Publishing Services)
‘Having been lucky enough to catch this show live I wasn’t sure if a book/CD would do it justice. It has… and here’s the proof.’
Dave Acari – Slide Guitarist & Songwriter
‘This inspired and inspiring collaborative project reminds us of the longstanding two-way traffic between music and the muse. What better duet can you get than the perfect harmony of songs and stories, lyrics and poetry, memory and melody?’
Willy Maley – Scottish literary critic, writer, University of Glasgow Professor of Renaissance Studies
‘Telling lies is an art form – morality clouded by beautiful adornment. Honestly.’
Stuart Cosgrove, Journalist, Author, Broadcaster
