    Speakin o Dundee

    £8.99
    This beautifully written collection of stories is entirely written in Scots as spoken in Dundee. With this book, Stuart McHardy achieves what he deeply believes in: sharing, sharing, sharing, since the magic of storytelling comes from these misty waters between facts and myths that need to flow not to stagnate.
