100 Days on Holy Island
There are six books out there somewhere that I ordered from amazon.ca and they are suppose to be on their way here with UPS but the UPS guy, Kevin, has not found his way to The Field yet. Thankfully one of the books I ordered came via the good old fashioned postal system.
100 Days on Holy Island seems to be about a writer who plunked himself down on Lindisfarne Island, otherwise known as Holy Island, for 100 days in the winter of 2000.
The writing is a bit jagged but he writes mostly about what life is like for an outsider moving there. It's a good travelogue so far, and the tension between the "God Squad" on the island and the "Regular Islanders" is an interesting mix of characters.
I'm just a few pages in but I'm enjoying it a good deal. And so far it seems like the religious types have been treating Peter Mortimer well.
Bring on the rest of the book.
