SYNOPSIS:  “Sitting among the Eskimos is a strong, tender, lethally comic debut from a bold new Scottish voice. Thirty-something Lizzie Burns lives between two worlds; a mature student and mother in the final year of an English degree, she is caught in a desperately sad, often hilariously funny cultural clash. Branded ‘no right in the heid’ by her husband and the inhabitants of the small town where she lives, she must juggle Shakespeare’s tragic heroines with the demands of three rowdy children, whilst staving off her fear that she just isn’t cut out for the hallowed Faculty of Arts.”
