Alexander Hutchison

Author: Alexander Hutchison

Alexander Hutchison brought out Scales Dog: Poems New and Selected from Salt in 2007, and earlier books include The Moon-Calf and Carbon Atom. His first collection, Deep-Tap Tree – which Richard Ellmann said was ‘compounded of wit and mystery’ – remains in print. Born in Buckie, Hutchison lived in Glasgow, he had taken to singing in later life, and liked to turn up for a kickabout on a red ash pitch on Sundays. He died in November 2015.
