by Colin McAllister

In this light-hearted collection of poetry, Colin McAllister muses on subjects as wide-ranging as his cruise around South America, his enthusiasm for golf, American politics and his first tentative steps into the world of computer technology. Drawing on the dialect of his native Scotland and experimenting with limerick and sonnet forms, But Does It Scan? is a vibrant insight into the poet's thoughts on his experiences of modern-day life.

Amazon states: Colin McAllister was born in 1942 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but has lived in St Andrews since 1955. He was educated at the Abbey School, Fort Augustus, and St Andrews University where he graduated with MA Honours in Political Economy and Geography
