Excerpt from Crockett and Grey Galloway: The Novelist and His Works When it was contemplated by the Publisher of this work to issue, in pamphlet form, an account of the complimentary banquet given to Mr Crockett at Dalbeattie in the autumn of last year, many of the friends of the novelist and admirers of his works were desirous to know something of his early life, school and college days, and career as a man of letters. As one who had known Mr Crockett from his boyhood, I was asked by the Publisher to furnish a biographical sketch of the novelists career, and otherwise undertake the preparation of the work for publication. This I readily undertook to do. Indeed, I felt highly gratified in being privileged to associate myself by commemorating, in this way, a brother Gallovidian's successful career in the literary world. At the same time, I entered upon the work with some misgivings. I was well aware that the writing of biography, especially contemporary biography, requires great tact and delicate handling.

For more than a century, the word 'Kailyard' has been a focal point of Scottish literary and cultural debate. Originally a term of literary criticism, it has come to be used, often pejoratively, across a whole range of academic and popular discourse. Historians, politicians and critics of Scottish film and media have joined literary scholars in using the term to set out a diagnosis of Scottish culture. This is the first comprehensive study of the subject. Andrew Nash traces the origins of the Kailyard diagnosis in the nineteenth century and considers the critical concerns that gave rise to it. He then provides a full reassessment of the literature most commonly associated with the term – the fiction of J.M. Barrie, S.R. Crockett and Ian Maclaren. Placing this work in more appropriate contexts, he considers the literary, social and religious imperatives that underpinned it and discusses the impact of these writers in the publishing world. These chapters are succeeded by detailed analysis of the various ways in which the term has been used in wider discussions of Scottish literature and culture. Discussing literary criticism, film studies, and political and sociological analyses of Scotland, Nash shows how Kailyard, as a critical term, helps expose some of the key issues in Scottish cultural debate in the twentieth century, including discussions over national representation, popular culture and the parochialism of Scottish culture.

This short story collection provides a range of stories from his magazine days. Ranging from Galloway to Europe this miscellany travels in time and from rural 'idyll' to 'realism' with his characteristic humour and descriptive powers to the fore at all times. The stories themselves are mainly Scotch. and done in Mr Crockett's best style. Reminiscent of his earlier novels but none the less readable on that account. It is on the heather or near the heather that Mr Crockett usually contrives to make his characters appeal most to the reader. This final collection of Crockett's short and serialised fiction is a cornucopia of delights for the committed Crockett fan and an eye opener for those new to his work. Stories of Galloway and stories from Europe sit side by side to delight and entertain the reader.
