Today we’re recommending the first Gaelic poetry collection from Calum L. MacLeòid, 2016 winner of the Scottish Book Trust Gaelic New Writers Award for prose. Bhon Phlateau than a’ Chladach covers a variety of topics including urban culture and landscape, relationships, the lives of everyday objects, and emigrant life as a Gael mediated through the internet. Presenting an adoration for both Canada and Scotland, MacLeòid’s collection will feel like a touch of home in these uncertain times.
