Allan Cameron has been involved with books for a very long time, as a translator since 1993, a published author since 2004 and a publisher since 2009. His books have been reviewed widely in the Herald, Scotsman, Guardian, Independent and other publications, and his published works include three novels (The Golden Menagerie, The Berlusconi Bonus, Cinico), two poetry collections (Presbyopia, A Barrel of Dried Leaves), two collections of short stories (Can the Gods Cry?, On the Heroism of Mortals), a collection of essays and aphorisms (Things Written Randomly in Doubt), and a book on language and language diversity (In Praise of the Garrulous).
His writing generally has political and satirical elements, and sometimes wanders into the territory of philosophy and religion. The work is also cosmopolitan and favours immigration and mutual respect between cultures. (Photo credit: Stewart Ennis)
