Welcome to an eerie voyage of heartache, loss, grief, and everything in between. With each turn of a page, a poignant story unwinds, reaching into Darkness' undiscovered depths and becoming lifelong comrades with it. Dreary verse by dreary verse, the psyche is doused in a Red Sea of gloom that the sun's healing light has eternally ceased to illume.
The Passion of My Desolation poems dive deep into the dark horrors of life and its struggles.
The acclaimed Scottish writer reflects on a small boat excursion through the Orkney Islands in this poetry collection of “touching lyrical sensitivity” (The Times Literary Supplement, UK). Andrew Greig has won much acclaim and numerous awards for his novels, poetry, and nonfiction evoking the natural beauty of rural Scotland or chronicling his far-flung adventures. In this volume, his love for his home and his passion for travel come together. One summer evening, Greig embarked upon a micro-odyssey from his home in Stromness to the island of Cava, and Found at Sea recounts in poetic sequence the tale of his open dinghy voyage. Written in six weeks, this is a “very wee epic” about sailing, male friendship, and a voyage. In sailing small boats in scary open waters, Andrew Greig has found a new activity and a new metaphor for life.

'...So what was he to do now? They were certainly two good looking girls, he couldn't recall seeing either of them around Nailstone before, he was sure that he'd remember if he had. Both were blonde, the one shorter than the other but with longer hair, both were wearing short skirts that flattered, what Chris had to admit, were two well above average pairs of legs and the general presentation that greeted his eyes as he stared over the road was, to say the least, very pleasant. So he asked himself again 'what do I do now?' D'you want a toffee? Said the smiling face of the shorter one of the two girls as she crossed the road towards them...'
