Bloody Scotland: Breaking barriers
Abir Mukherjee, AA Dhand, Sanjida Kay and Lilja Sigurdardottir
Join four crime writers who had to break through some of publishing’s glass walls and ceilings to get their bestselling and award-winning novels into print. As Bloody Scotland launches a prize with Harvil Secker for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic authors, we ask Abir Mukherjee, AA Dhand, Sanjida Kay and Lilja Sigurdardottir what challenges they faced in smashing through barriers of race, gender, class and sexual orientation. The results are clear and satisfying – indisputably superb crime writing – but just how easy was it for them to get there?
