A Tale of Literary Life



(1888)



Written in Scottish dialect, this is another of Barrie's novels set in the fictitious city of Thrums, with many autobiographical details.



One still Saturday afternoon some years ago a child pulled herself through a small window into a kitchen in the kirk-wynd of Thrums. She came from the old graveyard, whose only outlet, when the parish church gate is locked, is the windows of the wynd houses that hoop it round. Squatting on a three-legged stool she gazed wistfully at a letter on the chimney-piece, and then, tripping to the door, looked up and down the wynd.--"Rob Angus Is Not A Free Man", Chapter 1
