The Sound of My Voice
By (author) Ron Butlin
Morris is not hoping to meet Ms. Right and acquire the two kids that will straighten everything out. He already has all this and it hasn’t kept him off the bottle. Ron Butlin’s tale of one man’s inner turmoil is haunting, harrowing, yet strangely uplifting; a masterpiece from a celebrated Scottish writer and poet.
With an international reputation as a prize-winning novelist, Ron Butlin is a former Edinburgh Makar / Poet Laureate (2008-2014). In 2009 he was made the first ever Honorary Writing fellow (together with Ian Rankin) at Edinburgh University. Much of his poetry, as well as many of his novels and short stories, have been broadcast and translated into over a dozen languages. In addition to his plays for BBC radio and theatre, he has written seven opera libretti, three of them for Scottish Opera. He has given readings and talks all over the world.
