Product Description


For many years, George Mackay Brown wrote a weekly column in The Orcadian, and this is the fourth selection from it to come out in book form. Like Letters from Hamnavoe, Under Brinkie's Brae and Rockpools and Daffodils, this volume contains musings on Stromness, on current events, on the weather, the occasional story - like those previous volumes it is a delight to be picked over.

Press Reviews

What is striking about these pieces, apart from their superficial simplicity, is their compactness and sharpness, their sheer economy. Model examples of the miniature, they are 'small miracles of compression'.
