Rewriting Scotland examines six of the most influential and cutting-edge contemporary Scottish writers as they redefine outmoded notions of Scottish identity. From Irvine Welsh's windows into Scottish youth culture in Trainspotting to Janice Galloway's examinations of the duality of female isolation and empowerment, this unique work reveals new explorations of Scottish gender politics, sexuality, voice, and self-awareness.In Blackden, for example, Shona works almost incessantly through the novel as a chef for the owner of the local pub, who has expanded the puba#39;s service to include bar-suppers and has volunteered her to make stovies for the bar dance.
