Description
"I should like you to fish for me at the Loch of the Green Corrie," Norman MacCaig commanded Andrew Greig, just months before his death. "Go to Lochinver and ask for a man named Norman MacAskill—if he likes you he may tell you where it is. If you catch a fish, I shall be delighted. If you fail, then looking down from a place in which I do not believe, I shall be most amused." The quest sounds simple and irresistible, but the loch is as demanding as it is beautiful. In the course of days of outdoor living, meetings, and fishing with friends in the remote hill lochs of far northwest Scotland, the search broadens. At the Loch of the Green Corrie is a richly atmospheric narrative of joy and loss, poetry, geology, land ownership in the Highlands, and the ambiguous roles of whisky, love, and friendship—a celebration of losing and recovering oneself in a unique landscape, the consideration of a particular culture, and a homage to a remarkable poet and his world.

"Exquisitely written, moving and utterly memorable."—Andrew McCall Smith

"His most personal [book] to date. He writes with fragile honesty about his mistakes, his relationships and about the breakdown he had as a young man.... [And] there are interludes of joyous anecdote such as the account of his time as a wannabe singer/songwriter in the 1970s."—Scotsman
