'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' --Edwin Morgan, Times Literary Supplement
'Moving, playful and insightful by turns' --Ron Butlin, Sunday Herald
'A lyric poet of rare gusto' --The Observer

Andrew Greig was born in Bannockburn in 1951 and raised in the Fife town of Anstruther. His first book was the poetry collection "White Boats" and his novel, "In Another Light," won the Saltire Society prize in 2004. He has also had success with mountaineering titles, including "Summit Fever" and the mountain poetry collections "Men on Ice" and "Surviving Passages." In 1996 T"he Return of John Macnab" was shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists' Association Award. Greig is a former Glasgow University Writing Fellow and SAC Scottish/Canadian Exchange Fellow. He studied Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh and held a number of part-time jobs before turning to writing. He now lives in Orkney and Sheffield, and is married to author Lesley Glaister.
