Hellfire and Herring
Acclaimed Scottish writer Christopher Rush reads from his new memoirs – a vivid and richly poetic account of his post-war childhood in the small Fife fishing village of St Monans, where 'you could smell God on the air... as surely as you could smell the herring'.
5/5. The King My Father
Christopher describes his relationship with his drunken and abusive father; and discovers the power of the written word.
Abridged and produced by David Jackson Young.
