David Wheatley - Stravaig: A Fiction for Voices
Release date: January 31st 2021 Stravaig: A fiction for voices is a rewrite of Samuel Beckett’s great radio play All That Fall, set in rural Aberdeenshire. Where Beckett’s text is about two old people and the spectre of death, David Wheatley's text inverts the source material, centering it on two parents with young children. Stravaig, in remarkable style, presents certain obscurities to the reader, such as words or sentences in Scots, and discussion of matters Gaelic. This is a gem of a playscript and a truely sublime book.
