    Rab Wilson covers the variety of modern Scottish life through refreshingly honest and often humorous poetry, encompassing history, text messaging, politics, asylum-seeking hedgehogs and connoisseurs of Buckfast. Individual poems, whether set in the local supermarket or the former mining towns of his youth, have humour, pathos, sometimes indignation and always a warm immediacy. Rab Wilson is a free spirit who speaks and writes in Scots (in everyday letters and emails as well as poetry) with complete ease and unselfconsciousness. This inspirational collection reaffirms Rab Wilson's position as one of Scotland's leading poets and plays a part in the reinvigoration of the Scots language in modern Scottish society.
