Review:

[George Mackay Brown] really does possess the magician's touch ... [He has] the talent to lighten up the most humdrum detail of ordinary life. ( Observer)

[His] prose is severely simple and beautiful; he never wastes words, but evokes a complete atmosphere in a phrase. ( Scottish Field)

Book Description:
