Our first Society edition Auld Licht Idylls, A Window in Thrums and Margaret Ogilvy offers the reader the opportunity to explore 'Thrums' (Barrie's fictional version of Kirriemuir) in all its 'glory.' In all three we see fiction and fact melded together, sometimes humorously, sometimes uncomfortably, as Barrie represents a version of the world known to his mother and largely derived from the stories they shared in his childhood.
Our Society edition places these two loose biographical works together. In An Edinburgh Eleven Barrie reflects upon the men who influenced his time as a student at Edinburgh University, while in A Greenwood Hat he offers a less than reliable, and unashamedly fictionalised autobiography.
