An interesting idea for a book, this. It’s simply a collection of interviews with Scottish crime authors, transcribed to provide insight into their motivations, their writing processes, and what they think of the genres their books are considered to be in and out of.
Naturally, the participants are all very different - some I had heard of, some I hadn’t, and some I was so intrigued by I set out to find their books straight away. Their answers range from fascinating to sensible, from obvious to existential, and although some of it can be a bit overly philosophical, there’s a lot of good insight to be gained from reading this.
