Product description

Review

A decade on, [Mackay Brown] still seems a man chosen by his gift. --Scottish Review of Books

Book Description

George Mackay Brown wrote this memoir in the years before his death in 1996, but he did not want it published while he lived. In particular, he looks at Orkney, where he was born the youngest child in a poor family, and which he rarely left. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
