Double Heider comprises two superb novellas for the price of one. Hamish MacDonald's hyper-gallus history of Gilbert McGlinchy in The Girnin Gates and Sheena Blackhall's narrative of young Donnie Patersons life in Loon are a winning combination. Two vibrant hard hitting stories, The Girnin Gates and Loon are written in two different dialects of Scots Glaswegian and Doric by two of Scotlands finest writers. And Double Heider, a Scottish publishing first, demonstrates clearly that in language and in society there is more that unites us than divides us.
