The Island of the Women Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

"The Island of the Women" is George Mackay Brown's posthumously published collection of short stories, released in 1998, two years after the author's death.

Like his previous collections, "A Time to Keep" and "A Calendar of Love", this volume explores Brown's concerns with history, spirituality, legend and storytelling.

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.
