Young Art and Old Hector

Young Art and Old HectorYoung Art and Old Hector by Neil Gunn




Probably my absolute favourite book of all time, a wonderful account of the life of a boy and his grandfather in northeast Scotland. In the mid-60s it was serialised on "the Home Service" but not recorded! Every chapter is a good quality story written with extraordinary perception. Art's sports day can still almost(?) bring me to tears of vicarious pride.
