Author, playwright and journalist Philip Paris lives in the Highlands of Scotland and is best known for the historical fiction and non-fiction books he wrote about the Italian chapel, built during WW2 by Italian POWs in Orkney. His contemporary novel, Men Cry Alone, broke new ground in raising the profile of domestic abuse against men. His stage play, Casting Off, played to sell-out audiences in the autumn of 2015. The hilarious storyline is taken to new heights in his latest novel by the same name.
"An engaging story of hope set against the backdrop of the Second World War." SCOTSMAN MAGAZINE "A straightforward good read bolstered by some solid research which helps make the tale all the more believable." ROSS-SHIRE JOURNAL "If you buy one Orkney related book this year, make sure it is this one." LIVING ORKNEY
