When Bill Herbert was made Dundee Makar (or City Laureate), he intended to write about his home town in both its native tongues. Then within six months his much-loved father died, and that civic idyll was thrown into crisis. This is his Dundonian Book of the Dead, in which he explores both his own grief and the encroachment of a new intolerance.
