Read full description of the books One City:This book was created to raise money for Edinburgh's OneCity Trust, a charity committed to supporting projects and ideas that will tackle social injustice and inequality in the city. The proceeds from this book go towards literacy and educational themed projects. J.K. Rowling wrote the introduction.
Each of the three authors wrote a short story set in Edinburgh. The stories are engaging, with interesting characters and a glimpse of the city. McCall Smith's story has an immigrant to the city as the narrator and shows someone adjusting to a new place and culture. Rankin's has a person on the edge, hanging on and trying to show his individuality. Welsh's story followed a number of characters through a surreal set of incidents surrounding an animal. I would say they all had a touch of humour to them that made them more interesting to me. There is also an interesting, perhaps subtle link between the stories.
A great book, for a great cause.
