Product Description


An incident from the Viking period in the Northern Isles of Scotland inspired the title story of this remarkable collection of short stories. Mackay Brown elaborates and transforms it. Here, as in all these 21 stories, his imagination plays upon the past and gives it rich meaning for the present - and indeed universality.

Press Reviews

'His language is weather-beaten and terse, but even the briefest of these stories describe a world which seems fully realised.' - THE INDEPENDENT'His shard-like prose, with its apparently daring rhythms, belongs directly to some more ancient strain of literature, yet its concerns are identifiably contemporary.'- TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
