Liam McIlvanney: Down Under

The Tartan Noir Show takes social distancing to a whole new level by connecting (down under) with award winning Scottish author and academic Liam McIlvanney. Theresa Talbot talks to him about teaching Tartan Noir in New Zealand, how he grew up with books and why Glasgow is a great character in crime fiction. We also hear from Chris Brookmyre and Michael Robotham in conversation with Craig Sisterson at the 2019 Bloody Scotland International Crime writing festival in Stirling.
