Press Reviews

 'A writer of integrity and imaginative energy'

'A lyric poet of rare gusto'

'Andrew Greig is a Scottish poet of sensitivity and resilience. He deals with high-risk situations - from mountaineering to love - and is particularly good at presenting the gamut of feelings involved in rites of passage: high endeavour, commitment, holding back, drift, release'
