A Book of Death and Fish, Hardback Book

A Book of Death and Fish Hardback



"A bright book and a brilliant book." - Robert Macfarlane.

Peter MacAulay sits down to write his will. The process sets in motion a compulsive series of reflections: a history of his own lifetime and a subjective account of how key events in the post-war world filter through to his home, Stornoway.

He reveals his passions for history, engines and fish, and witnesses changing times - and things that don't change - in the Hebrides.

The novel is driven by its idiosyncratic narrator, but with counterpoints from people he engages with - his father, mother, wife, daughter, friends.

It's all about stories, a litany of small histories witnessed during one very individual lifetime.
