SONY DSCWhile in recent days we have had a special focus on the important work of Poppyscotland, the organisation continues to raise funds throughout the year. To this end, Postgraduate Publishing students have produced a new edition of The Glorious Thing by Christine Orr – the proceeds of which are being donated to Poppyscotland and Scottish Veterans Residences.

The Glorious Thing
Often funny, sometimes tragic, this thought-provoking and evocative novel, written by Christine Orr when she was only 19, is set in Edinburgh during the First World War. First published in 1919, this beautiful new edition provides a revealing snapshot of ordinary Edinburgh lives during an extraordinary time.
