‘Not a thing to learn inside a day’ – Catherine Czerkawska

for logoYou may recognise the name of my guest this week. She was one of my earliest Soundtrackers and she returns this week with a novel of friendship and betrayal: a man looking back on his youth and making sense of a troubled history. It’s set in Glasgow, and traditional Scottish music gave her both geographical setting and emotional landscape: the depth in apparent simplicity, the universal condition of loving and losing. She is novelist and award-winning playwright Catherine Czerkawska; the novel is The Physic Garden and she’ll be here on Wednesday with its Undercover Soundtrack.

      Thanks, Sonia! Catherine has a strong sense of place in both her posts and her novels. You might like her earlier post too – see the list of authors in the sidebar.
