George Mackay Brown wrote this memoir in the years before his death in 1996, but he did not want it published while he lived. Here we see the author’s simple, bardic honesty turned on himself.

In particular, he looks at Orkney, where he was born the youngest child in a poor family, and which he rarely left.
