About this product
- DescriptionWhen Peter Hill, a student at Dundee College of Art, answered an advert in The Scotsman seeking lighthouse keepers, little did he imagine that within a month he would be living with three men he didn't kw in a lighthouse on Pladda, a small remote island off the west coast of Scotland. Hill was nineteen, it was 1973 and, with his head fed by Vietnam, Zappa, Kerouac, Vonnegut, Watergate and Coronation Street, he spent six months on various lighthouses, keeping with all manner of unusual and fascinating people. Within thirty years this way of life was to have disappeared entirely. The resulting book is a charming and beautifully written memoir that is t only a heartfelt lament for Hill's own youth and incence but also for a simpler and more honest age.
- Author BiographyPeter Hill was born to an Australian mother and Scottish father and grew up in Glasgow. Following a brief stint as a lighthouse keeper, he did a number of jobs but for the past twenty years he has focused most of his energy into his art and working as an art critic. He has written for many publications including the Sydney Morning Herald, London Review of Books, Artpresse and Interview and in 1986 founded the arts magazine Alba. He currently lives in Sydney.
