Scotland has historically punched above its weight as a literary power; a small country that has populated the world with words. So what are the preoccupations and the influences that distinguish classic Scottish writing from its English and continental cousins? As we mark Scotland’s Year of Stories, critic and author Stuart Kelly leads a discussion about the tales the nation tells about itself.
