Nairn in Darkness and Light by David Thomson

Book Awards

  • Winner of McVities Prize for Scottish Writer of the Year 1987.

Book Description

Set in the 1920s, this marvellously sensitive autobiography recreates the varied community of Nairn, with its fishermen and townsfolk, its crofters and its prosperous upper-middle-classes. Nairn has witnessed many of the triumphs and tragedies of Scottish history, and these are recalled with intuitive understanding. But it is also the scene of David Thomson's formative years when he suffered an eye injury which nearly blinded him and shaped his whole future. Winner of the McVitie's Prize and the first NCR Book Award For Non-Fiction
