After a wild night-oot up at Kirk Alloway, Tam o Shanter has got some explaining to do. How does Kate take the news o his hell-raising ceilidh wi the witches? Why is the family cuddie wrapped aroond a lamp post? Does Tam get his tea or has he had his chips? Read and recited at Burns Suppers all over the world, Kate o Shanter's Tale is a classic of modern Scots poetry. Complemented by more rants and whigmaleeries by Scots writer Matthew Fitt, this vibrant first collection engages as much as it entertains.
