Chrys Salt, Artistic Director of Big Lit, interviews award winning Scottish novelist Karen Campbell about her most recent novel The Sound of The Hours. Karen won Best New Scottish Writer at the Scottish Variety Awards in 2010 and has continued to consolidate her success.
Enough to tell you that The Sound of The Hours is an historical novel set in Barga - Italy's most Scottish town. It tells the story of a Scots-Italian family caught up in World War Two, and the segregated US Buffalo soldiers who helped liberate them.
“An ambitious novel, and one of rare scope and understanding” Alan Massie, The Scotsman.
