George Mackay Brown (17 October 1921 – 13 April 1996)
What an interesting character. He grew up in a remote hamlet called Brawl near Strathy on the north coast of Scotland. I know that area well. There is virtually nothing at Brawl now, only a dilapidated farm - I wondered if that was where he lived.
Like is character his stories are interesting.
Peter Maxwell Davies (Max) set some of his poetry to music.
Ah, thanks for the hint.
