about this item
George Mackay Brown’s writing has never been more compelling and imaginative than in these six stories that celebrate the sea and the land, the past and present, voyages and homecomings. In the title story, Brown uses the famous Orcadian myth of the selkie, the seal-man. The story ‘Poet and Prince: A Fable’, explores the role of the writer in society, a tale which begins in an unknown European state and concludes on Brown’s beloved island.
