In her extraordinary new collection, Kathleen Jamie examines her native Scotland—a country at once wild and contained, rural and urban—and her place within it. In the author's own words : "2014 was a year of tremendous energy in my native Scotland, and knowing I wanted to embrace that energy and participate in my own way, I resolved to write a poem a week, and follow the cycle of the year." The poems also venture into childhood and family memory—and look to ahead to the future. The Bonniest Companie is visionary response to a year shaped and charged by both local and global forces, and will stand as a remarkable document of our times.

Kathleen Jamie's poetry collection The Tree House won both the Forward Prize and the Scottish Book of the Year Award. Mr and Mrs Scotland are Dead was shortlisted for the 2003 International Griffin Prize. Jamie's non-fiction books include the highly praised essay collections Findings and Sightlines. She teaches at Stirling University.
