In March 2012 my non-fiction book Mongol won The Janetta Bowie Chalice from the Scottish Association of Writers’ (SAW) 43rd annual conference.
Uuganaa’s childhood was spent in Western Outer Mongolia dreaming of travelling
abroad where she could buy chewing gum every day, writing her first poems dedicated
to Comrade Lenin at her desk full of Socialist slogans, and being told she would be
more famous than Lenin. But people aren’t always kind; things aren’t always quite as they seem.
Praise for Mongol
‘This is an extremely interesting memoir based on a double meaning… That double meaning translates well into the structure, and becomes increasingly emotionally engaging.’
Stuart Kelly, Literary Editor and Author
‘an interesting narrative of considerable cultural insight and cross-cultural value which deserves a wider readership’
Colin Nicholson, Emeritus Professor
