2022 was a memorable year for Scottish writing, with great debuts, the return of old favourites, novels, novellas, short stories, memoirs, and much more. So many books are published each year that it can be difficult to know where to start. With this in mind, SNACK presents you with Ten Best Scottish Books of 2022
James Kelman – God’s Teeth and Other Phenomena
The return of arguably Scotland’s greatest living writer is a reason for cheer, although it seemed to go widely unheralded. It’s a shame, as God’s Teeth and Other Phenomena is James Kelman at his most playful, recounting the trials and tribulations of an ageing author on the US university circuit, in what amounts to a thinly veiled portrayal of the great man himself.
