The Kailyard School of Literature
Tonight, I learned about, and wrote about for CQ, an obscure, narrow literary genre (and what's better than an obscure, narrow literary genre?) The Kailyard School is a genre focusing on the lower-class Scottish family. The books are easily identified by their extensive use of the approximation of the Scottish accent and dialect, which makes them harder to read than A Clockwork Orange. I bought two books in thie genre last week, and I hope to read them soon, now that I've learned something about what to expect.
