RAINBOW IN THE NIGHT by Fearghas MacFhionnlaigh is now available at £3. This is a wonderful English and Gaelic diglot epic poem, a trialogue between the author’s calvinist background, the Wizard of Oz, and his experience sitting beside the bedside of his seriously ill son Ciaran. Glad to say that I saw Ciaran a year or two ago in good health in Waterstone’s Inverness!
