The Kailyard Authors Series

Series Editor: Andrew Nash

'Few things are more remarkable in the recent history of our literature, than the rise of a new school of Scottish fiction, drawing its inspiration from locality and national character.' (Times, 19 January 1895)

In the closing decades of the nineteenth century, there developed a genre of Scottish writing which had a national and international impact on a scale not seen since the days of Sir Walter Scott. The fiction of J.M. Barrie, S.R. Crockett and Ian Maclaren, later known as the literature of the 'Kailyard', was devoured by hundreds of thousands of readers in Britain and America. Set mainly in the past and in remote rural regions of Scotland, the works of these three writers have had a profound and lasting influence on subsequent Scottish literature. Yet they are more often merely known about than actually read. This new series will reprint all of the major prose works of Barrie, Crockett and Maclaren, allowing both new readers and those already familiar with the texts to look afresh at this surprisingly varied body of work and to reach their own conclusions about this vital component of the history of Scottish literature.
