The Lost Trumpet

Synopsis

"James Leslie Mitchell's 'Lewis Grassic Gibbon' fiction of Scotland has made him famous, but there is another side to his writing (which he published in his own name) - his passion for writing about the world of history, archaeology and myth." "In this novel, published for the first time since 1932, the characters are all drawn to the deserts of Egypt by the legendary Lost Trumpet, which was believed to have blown down the walls of Jericho. They are entranced by its beauty and its dangers, and the thrill of finding some relic of a past which could still blow through the political struggles of the 1930s and bring some clarity to a world they find puzzling and sometimes repellent." "The Lost Trumpet is an amazing evocation of Egypt, heavily characteristic of Gibbon's early stories, steeped in the memory of his days in the armed forces served in the East, on the Nile, exploring the sounds and sights and smells of Egypt. It reminds us that Grassic Gibbon was a major author with a wide range of talent, which re-publication is making available after many years of neglect."
