MEDIA REVIEWS

'My book of the year - my favourite story - was James McGonigal's Beyond the Last Dragon, his honest, lucid, measured and deeply moving biography of Edwin Morgan.' Liz Lochhead 'The dragon of this book's title is death. The author begins his outstanding account with an analysis of several dreams that troubled the poet as he neared that deferred demise. This is no mere device. It gets the book off to a beguilingly symbolic start and is expertly followed up.' Donny O'Rourke, Scottish Left Review 'McGonigal negotiates Morgan's relationships with sensitivity, particularly with regards to his semi-hidden and then blossoming but illegal sexuality. He is intimate but not prurient.' Michael Gardiner, Scottish Review of Books
