The first major collection of essays devoted to Kelman's writing, this anthology clarifies and explores the full spectrum of his extraordinary work. Original essays consider novels, short stories, essays, polemics, and plays, and the vigorous debates they provoke. Key topics include Kelman's distinctive approach to language and narrative technique, his influence on recent Scottish fiction, his affiliations in socialist, nationalist, anticolonial, and gender politics, his interplay between political, linguistic, and artistic agendas, and his place within realist, modernist, and existential literary traditions.
Contributors also address wider debates in which Kelman's work is prominent, including the literary status of vernacular writing, the politics of canonizing working-class culture, and the validity of postcolonial approaches to Scottish literature. James Kelman is probably the most important Scottish writer now living; certainly he is the most influential and acclaimed. His art declares war on stereotypes, but is saddled with plenty of its own.
