Scottish connections



Lewis Grassic Gibbon (Author of Sunset Song)

This link outlines the relationship between my grandfather James Smythe and his sister Jean Baxter to Lewis Grassic Gibbon, the pen-name of James Leslie Mitchell.

Tom Buchan - poet and playwright

I never knew Tom Buchan myself, but his former wife Sundara Farley is now my wife. I also know his three children well. As he seems to have been a significant force in Scottish theatre and poetry, I have reproduced the obituaries that appeared in The Scotsman and The Herald in 1995.
