Description:Very Good. 7.7 x 4.9 x 1.1 inches. NEIL M. GUNN was born in...Very Good. 7.7 x 4.9 x 1.1 inches. NEIL M. GUNN was born in 1891. a crofter-fisherman's son from Latheron in Caithness. He spent some of his boyhood in Galloway, and worked as an exciseman from 1906 until 1937. From then until his death in January 1973, he lived in the Highlands and devoted himself to writing. "Modern Scottish fiction reaches its highest peak in the novels of Neil M. Gunn, . and yet Gunn is far from being a mere 'regional' novelist. Like Hardy, and indeed Joyce-all of whose work is set in Dublin-he transcends regionalism and acquires universality." James Caird, The Scotsman The Grey Coast is the coast of the Moray Firth in the Eastern Highlands of Scotland, where Neil M. Gunn's crofter-fishermen blend like their crofts into a harsh and tender landscape. This is the story of Ould Jeems, the adventure and generosity of his youth long soured by poverty, and his niece Maggie, still struggling to stifle her own youth's yearnings for what cannot be. Though few words are spoken, both feel trapped by a destiny they have no power to avoid...Yet underlying the rhythms of ploughing and milking and tending the fire, emotions remain no less powerful for being unexpressed. And when in the end their smouldering quiet erupts, the trap Ould Jeems has set himself is sprung with an irony both cruel and affirmative. Once more Neil Gunn returns to the scenes of his childhood at the turn of the century for the setting of a simple yet elemental story that speaks as compellingly as ever to new generations of readers. It deals with feelings and values with a sureness and directness that is rare in any literature.
