Electric Brae

At the centre of
Electric Brae is the crumbling sea-stack of the Old Man of Hoy and the consuming relationship between a young artist, Kim, coldly passionate, talented, secretive, and Jimmy, a North Sea roughneck, engineer and climber. Acclaimed on publication for marking a brave new direction in the course of Scottish fiction,
Electric Brae is a story of love and loss, loyalty and betrayal, and fathers and children.
