The Lost Glen vividly portrays a clash of cultures and personalities against a background of a landscape in visible .

The Lost Glen vividly portrays a clash of cultures and personalities against a background of a landscape in visible decay. The cultural collision and its effects are explored through Ewan, recently returned from university in disgrace, and a retired English colonel staying at the village hotel. Horrific experiences of the blitz in wartime London and the spiritual bankruptcy of her lover and his Marxist acquaintances are seen through the eyes of Nan, a young Scotswoman, who has returned to her native Highlands to recover from a nervous breakdown. Written with all the power of a master hand this is a subtly thoughtful and gripping novel that has a strange relevance to today's events.

Neil Miller Gunn (8 November 1891 – 15 January 1973) was a prolific novelist, critic, and dramatist who emerged as one of the leading lights of the Scottish Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s.

The Lost Glen vividly portrays a clash of cultures and personalities against a background of a landscape in visible . The cultural collision and its effects are explored through Ewan, a young local man recently returned from university in disgrace, and a retired English colonel staying at the village hotel. One of the earliest novels to appear in the Scottish Literary Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s, The Lost Glen turns its back on the form of writing that had depicted Scotland as a rural paradise in favour of describing Highland life as it really was at that time.

Neil (Miller) Gunn was born in Dunbeath, a small fishing and crofting .

Neil (Miller) Gunn was born in Dunbeath, a small fishing and crofting community in Caithness, North East Scotland, in 1891. Although he was educated in Galloway, he grew up with a love of the Highlands and Highland culture and, as an adult, he returned to the North East to live and work. Gunn, the son of a fisherman, was born at a time when the herring fishing industries of Scotland were beginning to die out, and much of Highland culture was in decline, with a falling population and growing unemployment. In 1956 he published his final book, The Atom of Delight, a spiritual autobiography which traced his interest in Zen Buddhism.

The Lost Glen" vividly portrays a clash of cultures and personalities against a background of a landscape in visible decay. Both men in a sense are alienated from the community, the younger because of a haunting sense of failure, and the older through an unwillingness to understand the local culture. They have a mutual antipathy.

The first novels Gunn published were The Grey Coast in 1926 and The Lost Glen in 1928.
