‘Guitar!’ describes the contours and conditions of writing – interrupted, in flashes, or in restless moments through the night. A narrator listens; as a child learns to speak, there is a re-acquaintance with the strangeness of putting a feeling into words. There is a yearning for meeting and an idea of love or companionship as a sense of being met. The first-person, informally-written missives are punctuated by a series of black and white images of buskers, photographed by Francis McKee in Glasgow. Sarah Tripp is an artist, writer and lecturer based in Glasgow, and her book is supported by Creative Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art.
