    Scott-land: The Man Who Invented a Nation

    £12.99
    Stuart Kelly's biography of Sir Walter Scott defies classification in terms of genre. Rather than a literary biography, or critical study, it is a personal examination of the sometimes overwhelming affect Scott has had on Scottish identity at large, and on how his legacy affects the very act of writing in Scotland.
