For George Mackay Brown lovers and everyone else, 24 Feb 2011
This is not only a terrific biography of George Mackay Brown, it's a great story of an unusual man from Orkney, a genius of place and time. And it's beautifully written, hard to put down. I couldn't recommend it more highly, both for lovers of Brown's work and for anyone interested in people and the history of a place.
