Malachy Tallack - Illuminated by Water

Nairn Community & Arts Centre,
1 Sep – 1 Sep

Malachy Tallack has been passionate about fishing since he was young. Growing up in Shetland, with its hundreds of lochs, he and his brother would roam the islands in search of trout, and in so doing discovered a sense of freedom, of wonder, and an abiding passion. In his new book, Illuminated by Water, he examines the complicated pleasures that angling offers, and asks why is it that what seems such a simple act – of casting a line and hoping – can feel so rich in mystery? 
Malachy Tallack’s recent novel, The Valley at the Centre of the World (Canongate) was shortlisted for the Highland Book Prize and longlisted for the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize.
