At the Loch of the Green Corrie by Andrew Greig

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb read., 27 Jun 2014
I received a recommendation for this book from a friend after mentioning that I had recently visited Assynt. Once I began reading I was quickly enthralled, and devoured the book in a very short time. However, I am not giving it to the charity shop or elsewhere just yet. I need to re-read it! There is so much richness in it. The book is well written, a personal testimony to a friendship with the late poet Norman MacCaig, and includes poetry, anecdotes, reflection and some profound writing of a very high quality indeed. This is what good writing is all about. It has also encouraged me to discover more about MacCaig, and I am already enjoying reading some of his poetry.
The World Upside Down: English Misericords by Christa Grossinger
5.0 out of 5 stars English Misericords, 13 Dec 2013
A fine and detailed study of English Misericords. This is a well designed and produced volume by an academic who appears to have thoroughly researched the field. Good illustrations.
