Some of the country’s leading writers are captured in this unique anthology which celebrates the many and varied islands around our shores. Kathleen Jamie, Mervyn Peake, John Betjeman, Brendan Behan, Hugh MacDiarmid, Louis MacNeice, Geoffrey Grigson, W.B. Yeats, George Orwell, and Kathleen Raine are just a few of the 50 authors whose prose works evoke and record in a whole variety of ways, the culture, lives and essence of island life. The collection follows IRON’s highly successful anthology – also edited by James Knox Whittet, 100 Island Poems, published in 2005.

Praise for 100 Island Poems:

“I cannot recommend this book too highly. The Foreword by the editor James Knox Whittet, who himself was born and brought in the Hebridean island of Islay, is deeply moving and thought provoking and contains many wise insights.”
— Ann Jones
