Christmas Stories
Christmas Stories by George Mackay Brown (Publications International, 2005)

In November BOOKMARK hosted a hugely enjoyable afternoon celebrating the writer George Mackay Brown, guided by poet and co-editor of Beyond the Swelkie, Jim Mackintosh, together with poets Beth McDonough and John Glenday. I listed some of George Mackay Brown’s works in my November recommendations and make no apologies for including another book this month: the topical Christmas Stories, which begins with the autobiographical ‘A Child’s Christmas Story’ (echoing Dylan Thomas – a theme of discussion at the November BOOKMARK event). Each story is a jewel, all are perfect for mid-winter.
