The Year of Open Doors is one of the most ambitious collections of recent years, and a document of the dynamic changing face of both Scotland, and contemporary Scottish literature. Edited by Rodge Glass, and with a foreword from Irvine Welsh, it features work from Alan Bissett, Sophie Cooke, Kevin MacNeil and Colette Paul as well as international authors such as Kapka Kassabova and Jason Donald.
