Allan Massie

Allan Massie is currently a journalist and critic for the Scotsman and the Sunday Times.  Gore Vidal called him a 'Master of the Long Ago Historical Novel'.  His 1980 novel 'A Question of Loyalties' won The Saltire Society's Scottish Book of the Year Award.

Many of his successful novels are reconstructed autobiographies or biographies of famous people. 'The Ragged Lion' is an apparently fictional memoir written by Walter Scott.  It is an enthralling insight into a man more famous for his public, rather than personal, image.  Highly acclaimed as a work of historical fiction, Allan Massie brings Walter Scott to life in an unforgettable way.  www.orionbooks.co.uk

It‘s fantastic and its so nice that its so busy and in our local area.  It has huge crowds for such a small place as Blair and it is so community driven which is lovely.
