Greenvoe (Jun)

Greenvoe

Description:

Greenvoe, the tight-knit community on the Orcadian island of Hellya, has existed unchanged for generations, but Operation Black Star requires the island for unspecified purposes and threatens the islanders' way of life. A whole host of characters - The Skarf, failed fisherman and Marxist historian; Ivan Westray, boatman and dallier; pious creeler Samuel Whaness; drunken fisherman Bert Kerston; earth-mother Alice Voar, and meths-drinker Timmy Folster - are vividly brought to life in this sparkling mixture of prose and poetry.
