Carl MacDougall; television presenter, radio broadcaster, editor, compiler, reviewer, but first and foremost, writer. Carl has written novels, collections of short stories, non-fiction, journalism, plays, radio programmes and television series. However he is most at home writing fiction.
“Carl is a hero of mine… a great storyteller.”
“His work has a unique and distinctive flavour; the writing is beautiful.”
GEORGE MACKAY BROWN
“Carl MacDougall is a writer who is willing to be jumped on by things everyone doesn’t see.”
“He doesn’t always write about Glasgow… but when he does, he manages better than almost any other writer to communicate place and people together, and in balance; our intangible criterion for a Glasgow short story.”
