LEIGH FORBES: Books of all Sorts

At the Loch of the Green Corrie

by Andrew Greig.

The most astonishingly thought-provoking narrative, which weaves together a biography of the poet Norman MacCaig, fishing, whisky, wild camping in the north west Highlands of Scotland, geology, and that link between the soul and what it means to be alive.

Greig opened my mind to ideas that now seem so simple, so obvious, but that had never occurred to me before. He has reminded me of the importance of valuing the people you love, to make your own opportunities, and realise that you can only experience life (whatever it throws at you) while you’re still alive.

There was nothing about this book I didn’t like.
