'You could easily make a case that Andrew Greig has the greatest range of any living Scottish writer' - Scotsman
To poach a salmon, grouse and a deer from three Royal Estates.
Three men in a mid-life crisis who should know better.
The wild card
A flirtatious female journalist who won't take no for an answer.
Striding over the Scottish Highlands with a poet's eye on the wilderness and a firm grip on the adventure, Andrew Greig re-imagines John Buchan's classic novel with a little less tweed, a little more sex, and just the right measure of whisky.
Andrew Greig is a poet and novelist. He has published six volumes of poetry (Bloodaxe) and four novels, the most recent of which, That Summer, brought him to a wide readership. He was born in Bannockburn in Scotland and educated at the University of Edinburgh. He lives in Orkney and Sheffield (with his wife the writer Leslie Glaister). Among other things, he is known as the unofficial poet laureate of the mountaineering community and a love of the land characterises much of his work.
