'George Mackay Brown's Winter Tales is an enchanting, tender and robust collection of stories steeped in the ancient rhythms and customs of rural life.' VOGUE 'The burnished beauty of his natural descriptions is that of a spellbinding spinner of tales, making his a worthy addition to the trove he would preserve.' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 'In this collection the author is at his celebratory and affirmative best. Everything he writes about is rooted in the harsh Orkney landscape, yet is often heart-achingly tender and compassionate.' YORKSHIRE POST
