Later That Day
By (author) Andrew Greig
Later That Day contains new works of gratitude and elegy. At once lyrical and direct, these poems take place in Glasgow, Auckland, the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands, and above all amid the clear light and bare, fertile islands of Orkney. They look to come across the distance between writer and reader, between one person and another, as they register the magic and loss of living and loving.
Andrew Greig is a Scottish writer living in Edinburgh and Orkney. He has written seven novels including In Another Light, That Summe and The Return of John Macnab. His non-fiction books, on a variety of subjects, include: Summit Fever, on Himalayan mountaineering; You Know What You Could Be: Turning into the 1960s, with Mike Heron; Preferred Lies, on Scottish golf; and the much-loved At the Loch of the Green Corrie, a fishing quest in Assynt in memory of his friend and mentor Norman MacCaig. His prose titles are cherished by many for their emotional candour, humanity and enjoyment of storytelling and adventure. Yet the heart of his life’s work lies in nine volumes of poetry, including Found At Sea; Getting Higher: Complete Mountain Poems and This Life, This Life: New and Selected Poems. His collection The Order of the Day was a Poetry Book Society choice.
