Nan will be making her first appearance on the Edinburgh Fringe this August. The one-man-plus-several-others show 'NanShepherd: From Flaneur to Fiver' will be staged for three nights at the Scottish Poetry Library - August 20, 21, and 22; 7.30 £6 (£4).
Personal appearances are promised by Fats Waller, General Erich Ludendorff, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
Gerda Stevenson's beautiful reading of Nan's 'In The Cairngorms' poetry collection can now be downloaded here. Publishers Galileo anticipate releasing a 'luxury' CD version over the summer.
And stand by for some remarkable developments on the 'Living Mountain' front. Canongate have signed up a very prestigious voice for an audio version. Spoiler alert: it is neither Lady Gaga nor Bradley Cooper.
Here is the cover for the new semi-hardback version of The Living Mountain, to be released by Canongate later this year (2019) .
For good measure we can give you a sneak preview of the cover of Taiwanese version of The Living Mountain. This rather fine Scottish stag will be a relief to zoologists, many of whom have pointed out that the breed of deer on the cover of the current Canongate paperback is, in fact, native to the Rocky Mountains.
A site-specific interpretation of The Living Mountain is to be staged in the Cairngorms on four afternoons between May 30 and June 2.
Choreographed by Simone Kenyon, and featuring a team of 'body-weather' dancers and an all-female choir, 'Into The Mountain' promises to "make connections that offer multiple perspectives of this mountainous environment."
