"In Grimoire, Robert Robertson mixes Scots, English and Gaelic to mesmerising effect"

There is a steeliness to Robertson’s work. I would like an audio-book version, as in performance, he is dreadfully still as he tells us dreadful things. This is the poetry of the pause, not the applause. But there is one hand clapping here.
