I share my thoughts on Norman Bissell’s fictionalised retelling of a crucial period in George Orwell’s life.
In the summer of 1727, a party of men and boys are put ashore on a remote sea stac to harvest birds for food. No one returns to collect them. How will they survive?
Writer, James Dixon, has created an offbeat protagonist in Willem Gyle.
Without a doubt, this book has been my favourite read of 2017.
