Jessie Kesson (1916-1994) was born in Inverness and spent her childhood in the north of Scotland. She combined a successful writing career with a variety of jobs, from cleaner to artist's model, and was a social worker for nearly twenty years, settling finally in London with her husband.
'One of the literary treasures of modern Scotland.' WILLIAM DONALDSON 'Jessie Kesson writes beautifully, her strong, delicate prose full of poetry and humour.' DAILY TELEGRAPH
