More Views from the North Lochs: Aimsir Eachainn 1989 to 1995 (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Giving a voice to the Scottish Gael at the end of the 20th century, the late Hector Macdonald scribed the brilliant weekly column, A View from North Lochs for the "West Highland Free Press". Inspired by the great Irish writer Brian O'Nolan, who published novels under the pseudonym Flann O'Brien but wrote for the "Irish Times" as 'Cruiskeen Lawn', Hector Macdonald commented for more than fifteen years from the North Lochs, creating an array of unforgettable characters, eccentric scenarios, magnificent satire and enraged comment, all of which were entwined with an effortless humour and grace. This book is the second collection of columns from the great Aimsir Eachainn, following on from the hugely successful first volume.

Born in Ranish on the Isle of Lewis in 1945, Hector Macdonald worked for the Met Office for several years before beginning a career at the Stornoway Gazette in 1979. This was the first outlet for his weekly columns before he was poached by the West Highland Free Press. Under the tutelage of Brian Wilson he found a true home for a style of writing that could be described as thought provoking, sometimes irreverent, but nearly always funny. Over a period of more than fifteen years he wrote in the region of eight hundred columns for the West Highland Free Press before his death in 1995.
