Peter May'sThe Chessman, the third in the trilogy set on the Isle of Lewis, part of the Outer Hebrides off the extreme North West Coast of Scotland, has just launched in the UK. The second is The Lewis Man, and the first, of course, is The Blackhouse. I asked Peter for a guest post on the Trilogy, and he will be sending
an article in February. Right now he's working on
the text to a photo book called Peter May's Hebrides.
In the meantime, watch this video in which Peter May explains how The Blackhouse might be languishing in a drawer now, had
it not been for an editor who believed in him, a publishing house that
broke all the rules to support him, and a French public who have adopted
this Scotsman and rewarded him with praise and literary prizes...
