Review quote

'Superb ... A delight ... A magical selection' THE TIMES 'Clear, sharp and perfectly pitched, [these stories] are not so much stories as slivers of myth.' THE SUNDAY TIMES 'Lovely lyrical stuff ... singing, sweet-sounding prose which begs to be read aloud.' THE SPECTATOR

About George Mackay Brown

George Mackay Brown (1921-96) was one of the major Scottish literary figures of the twentieth century - a prolific poet and novelist, he took much of his inspiration from the myths and landscape of Orkney, and also from his deep Catholic faith. He was born in Orkney in 1921 and died there in 1996. Following his first book in 1954 he published many more, including plays, novels and poems. Sir Peter Maxwell Davies has set much of his work to music. In 1988 he was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for The Golden Bird. In 1994 his Beside the Ocean of Time was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and judged Book of the Year by the Saltire Society.
