Stories




Stories inform and shape us. We are all made of stories. But what do we make of them?

In 2013, James Robertson wrote a story every day. Each was 365 words long. A year later, on a daily basis, the stories were published on the Five Dials website. Now the 365 stories are gathered in one volume. Some draw on elements of ancient myth and legend, others are outtakes from Scottish history and folklore; there are squibs and satires, songs and ballads in disguise, fairy tales, stories inspired by dreams or in the form of interviews, and personal memories and observations.

Underpinning them all are vital questions: Who are we? What are we doing here? What happens next?
