We are delighted to welcome celebrated non-fiction writer Malachay Tallack as he celebrates the launch of his first novel ‘The Valley at the Centre of the World’
Originally from Shetland, Malachy Tallack is the author of two non-fiction titles, ’60 Degrees North’ and ‘The Un-Discovered Islands’. Both fused nature writing, history and memoir; the first was shortlisted for the Saltire First Book Award and the second was named Illustrated Travel Book of the Year at the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2016. Malachy won a New Writers Award from the Scottish Book Trust in 2014, and the Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship in 2015. He is a singer-songwriter as well as a writer and journalist, and lives in Glasgow.
‘What I’ve been waiting for: a moving, authentic novel of the Scottish islands in the twenty-first century.’ Amy Liptrot, Bestselling author of THE OUTRUN
‘A desperately beautiful novel. Tallack writes with such tenderness for his characters and quiet awe for the patch of earth he places them upon. Now that I’ve turned the last page, I find myself experiencing a strange kind of loneliness.’ Sara Baume, author of SPILL SIMMER FALTER WITHER and A LINE MADE BY WALKING
Remember, this is a pay what you feel event, so we hope you feel generous…
