Oyster is the second collection from prize-winning Edinburgh poet Michael Pederson.

Powerful and penetrative; Pederson vividly illuminates scenes with an energy that is both witty and humorour, but also deeply intelligent.



In the Days of Rain
by Rebecca Stott

Winner of the 2017 Costa Book Awards - Biography

Rebecca Stott was born into a closed Christian sect which believed the world was ruled by Satan: women were made to wear headscarves, non-sect books were forbidden and those who disobeyed the rules were punished.

Decades laters, as Rebecca's father lay dying, he begged her to help him write the story of their family.
