The Magicians of Edinburgh, Paperback

The Magicians of Edinburgh Paperback

Illustrated by James Hutcheson



Edinburgh has long inspired writers, from Robert Louis Stevenson to Hugh MacDiarmid.

In this sparkling new collection of poems about the city in the twenty-first century, renowned poet and novelist Ron Butlin draws on his experience as Edinburgh's Makar, or Poet Laureate.

With verve and wit, Butlin leads the reader on a journey through multi-faceted Edinburgh, a place of sweeping vistas and strip bars, grand towers and failed tramlines, world heritage and homelessness.

Underlying all these poems, whether satirical or celebratory, is a deep love for the architecture, landscape and people of Scotland's capital city.

The Magicians of Edinburgh will delight long-time residents and visitors alike.
