Product Description
Product Details

'Consistently well written, sometimes dazzlingly so' Independent. 'Moving and utterly memorable, a triumph' The Times. 'If you have a desire to luxuriate in the most beautiful use of the English language borne along by the love of one gifted poet for a recognized master of melancholy, then this is the book for you. It most certainly is the book for me' Billy Connelly. 'A ruminative, beautifully written book that is at once a biography of MacCaig, an account of a journey in North West Scotland and a captivating memoir of Greig's life as a poet, Himalayan climber and fisherman' Sunday Times. 'It is completely absorbing ... and the intense self-scrutiny is matched by landscape writing worthy of Stevenson himself. Over and over, Grieg makes place into an event in its own right' Guardian.
