The Tobermory Book Festival: David Greig


Columba’s Bones

The first ever novel by award-winning Scottish playwright David Greig, Columba’s Bones recasts 9th century Scotland as the setting for a Scandi-noir-style thriller. A darkly funny story of abandonment, subterfuge and new horizons set on 9th century Iona, featuring bloodthirsty Vikings, beatific Nuns and a hidden treasure. It is the latest instalment in Polygon’s Darkland Tales series.

Since setting up the Suspect Culture theatre company in the 1990s, his plays have been performed widely in Scotland and around the world, including Midsummer, The Events, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Local Hero, and The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart. He is currently the Artistic Director at Edinburgh’s Lyceum Theatre. Columba’s Bones is his first book.
