The Book of St Andrews juxtaposes poems, stories and memoirs with scant regard to chronological order, but in the
confidence that each contribution, lively in its own right, may also enhance the others. The anthology, like the town,
contains golfers, kids from the caravan site, students and professors, born Fifers and visitors from near and far parts of
the planet. Some contributors live and work in St Andrews; others passed through some time ago; one or two, like Homer
or St Andrew, never saw the place, but are linked to it regardless.
Here are specially written stories by Meaghan Delahunt, A.L. Kennedy, and Sarah Hall; new poems by Seamus Heaney,
Paul Muldoon, and Don Paterson; memoirs by Kay Redfield Jamison and Ian Rankin.
