Abstract:

'Lunch at Yes' suggests a number of possibilities. Is it simply a meal at a popular Glasgow restaurant, or an imperative to feast on the positive, or is there some other meaning to be found? Whatever, it's an upbeat title and we hope it is indicative of the good things on offer in this year's anthology of new writing. The recently-introduced process of blind judging of submissions to New Writing Scotland is proving interesting. A few well-known writers who submitted work were not selected, while several new and emergent writers were, many of the latter previously unknown to us. The editors consciously try not to put a name to the work in the preliminary reading, but occasionally the writing is so distinctive the author is not hard to spot. For example, anyone who has ever read an extract from David Neilson’s (unfortunately still unpublished) epic tale Robert the Vole would have no difficulty identifying his work: there is nothing else quite like it. Very often during the selection process themes emerge of their own accord: in this case, food, winter, birds, fish and, given the predilections of the editors, cats of course. But eating and drinking seem to predominate (another editorial partiality? surely not) and so the reader may go to 'Illusions for Coffee', then 'Lunch at Yes', visit 'The Happiest Place to be in Scotland on a Saturday Afternoon', experience 'Nacho-Munchers and Dolly-Grips' at the cinema and have 'Nectarines’ for afters (and don’t forget the ‘Marmite') — or indeed have a whole range of tastes and interests catered for, including the amazing Free Presbyterian Dolphins'. Now there’s a title that can be read in more than one way. As the wonderful waitpersons in Yes say: Enjoy!
