About the Author

Norman Maclean was born in Glasgow in December 1936 to Hebridean parents: Peigi Bheag, nighean Thormoid Ailein, from Cladach a' Bhaile Shear, North Uist, and Niall Mรฒr, mac Iain Eoghainn Ruaidh, from 'The Green' on the island of Tiree. Brought up in Glasgow, he was evacuated during the Second World War and spent some of his formative years in both Strathan at the head of Loch Arkaig and in Grรฌminis, Benbecula. Maclean who is best known as a stand-up comedian, singer and piper, is also an accomplished writer in both English and Gaelic. In Eavesdropping on Myself he chronicles his boyhood in Glasgow and explores the push-pull of two cultures: working-class Glaswegian and first-generation Hebridean.
