Something bittersweet hides behind today’s door on the Literary Advent Calendar. It has been chosen by Helen MacKinven, author of Talk of the Toun.
Helen has chosen Buddha Da by Anne Donovan.
Helen says: ‘Buddha Da is a bittersweet black comedy written in Glaswegian vernacular exploring a family’s relationships and fittingly for the Christmas season it delivers a message of tolerance and compromise. It inspired me to write in Scots dialect with a mix of pathos and humour.’
