Jim Hewitson became a daily newspaper reporter then what Jim himself describes as an 'accidental wordsmith'. In the past decade, from his base on the tiny island of Papa Westray, he has produced a dozen books and hundreds of newspaper articles.

'There is nothing that Jim Hewitson isn't interested in. And he writes with wit, a kind of wry savviness and compassion. It's a great combination and this book of articles, stories, poems and snippets celebrates his wanderings from Clydeside via the rest of this 'damned, perplexing, wonderful world' to Papa Westray with a verbal skill as sharp as his eye. From the bizarre to the imaginative, to the positively zen-like and downright poignant, it's an experience beautifully summed up in his description of another writer: 'Crivvens, Eclectic or whit?' - Pam Beasant, George Mackay Brown Writing Fellow.
