Now a major motion picture directed by Terence Davies, starring Agyness Deyn, Peter Mullan and Kevin Guthrie, Sunset Song is a powerful portrait of a land and people in turmoil, seen through the life and struggles of its heroine Chris Guthrie.
In the years up to and beyond the First World War, Chris's resilience, like the land itself, endures despite everything, and is portrayed with a lyrical intensity that echoes through the years and still resonates today.

"When I read Lewis Grassic Gibbon's Sunset Song in my mid-teens I entered into it with such wholehearted love that I longed to live inside it . . . Chris is the centre of the novel and its genius, vivid on every page where she's present. You feel how she must have possessed the writer, as powerfully as if he knew her . . . . Reading her again now, she convinces me absolutely as a real female" (TESSA HADLEY Guardian)
