img_20161126_151756846Today the Herald has an arts supplement with Books of the Year 2016 chosen by various guest selectors. Broadcaster Sheena McDonald has chosen my book ‘Sleeping in Temples‘ as one of her books of the year:

A good Christmas present for a music-lover in your life, perhaps…

    Your always fan,
