George Mackay Brown’s collection of stories are centered on the gravity of origin––the imperfect memories, fantasies, myths, and rituals that come together in moving representations of his Orkney roots. Mining the history of the island’s legends, through celebrations and strife and prophecies that may or may not have come true, Mackey’s stories come together to vamp on the landscape of themes and symbols of his Isle, that have become eponymous with the collective identity of those who call that place home.
