Product description

Review

'A beautiful story of love and loss, precise, subtle, spiritually alive' Andrew O'Hagan. (Andrew O'Hagan)

'Island of Wings captures a world that disappears in the act of description, and the love, so inescapable and elusive, of the outsiders who try to tame it. With scrupulous attention to place, history and the natural world, it tells a story washed by a clean and lovely kind of sorrow' Anne Enright. (Anne Enright)
