An extraordinary collection of interviews with lighthouse keepers and their families, in their own words - a record of a vanished profession and a vanished Britain of the 1970s.
Described by William Golding as "one of the most fascinating social documents I have ever read", it captures the delights and downfalls of isolation, the mind-games it plays on ordinary people and the romance of the outer reaches of Britain.
