About the Book

This brand new anthology is comprised of creative prose, non-fiction and poetry that ranges from St. Columba to the present day, all linked by the isle of Iona. Featuring specially commissioned work by Meaghan Delahunt, Jennie Erdal, Sara Lodge, Victoria Mackenzie, Candia McWilliam, Ruth Thomas, and Alice Thompson this wonderful collection will have broad historical and contemporary appeal. The Book of Iona is a celebration of one of Scotland's most beautiful islands and follows on from the success of The Book of St. Andrews (Polygon, 2007).
